U.S. Mission to Russia Reduces Consular Services

Out of concern for the health of our Russian and American staff and the public in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Mission to Russia has reduced visa operations and routine American citizen services.

Effective March 18, the consular sections of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, the U.S. Consulate General in Yekaterinburg, and the U.S. Consular Agency in Sakhalin, remain open and will provide emergency consular services only.

The Department of State has temporarily suspended operations at the U.S. Consulate General in Vladivostok.

U.S. Citizens

U.S. Citizens in need of emergency assistance should call the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, or the U.S. Consulate General in Yekaterinburg.  For more information on American Citizen Services in the Russian Federation, please visit: https://ru.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/
