The U.S. Embassy revises the procedure for visas applications

The U.S. Embassy revises the procedure for nonimmigrant visas applications. From August 1st, Russian citizens will no longer need to apply  for visa via Pony Express. On-line registration and documents submitting will be available at the U.S. Embassy website.


It is expected that the new registration system will make the whole procedure easier for Russian citizens and will significantly reduce the costs for the applicants. At the same time the existing system of interviews appear to remain unchanged.

U.S. Embassy Moscow will host a live web chat on Thursday, 28 July at 3 pm to discuss the new visa appointment system. Everybody will have a chance to speak live with consular officers about the new system. Questions will be accepted in either English or Russian.
