Important Notice from U.S. Embassy Consular Section

ATTENTION: U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide are currently experiencing technical difficulties that may result in delay in visa processing and receiving and sending communications. While the Consular Section in Moscow continues to operate normally, it is unable to process credit card payments at this time. Additionally, applicants who have interviews for student and exchange visitor (F/M/J) visas scheduled for this week should bring proof of payment of the SEVIS fee. U.S. citizens may also experience delays in sending and receiving communications. U.S. citizens requiring emergency assistance should contact us at +7 (495) 728-5577. Visa questions should, as always, be directed to: or by phone +7-495-745-3388 or 8-800-100-2554
