The U.S. Embassy in Moscow has provided additional guidance for immigrant visa applicants following the U.S.’s addition of Russians to the Homeless Nationalities list.
Additional Information: Consular services in Russia have been strictly limited since May after the U.S. said it would curtail services following Russia’s move to bar U.S. Mission Russia from employing non-Russian nationals. The U.S. government designated Russian nationals as “homeless nationals” in October.
BAL Analysis: Immigrant visa services in Russia remain available only in very limited, emergency situations. Russian nationals applying for U.S. visas should follow the embassy’s guidance; immigrant visa applicants in Russia should plan on booking their appointments at the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw. Nonimmigrant (temporary) visa services remain unavailable in Russia except for diplomatic or official travel. BAL will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates on significant developments.
