Политикус

The US embassy in Russia issued a statement on its intention to suspends issuing nonimmigrant visas.

The statement issued by the embassy reads:

"Russia’s decision to reduce the United States’ diplomatic presence here calls into question Russia’s seriousness about pursuing better relations. 

We will maintain sufficient staff to carry out essential elements of our mission.

Due to the Russian government-imposed cap on U.S. diplomatic personnel in Russia, all nonimmigrant visa operations across Russia will be suspended on August 23.  Operations will resume in Moscow on September 1; visa operations at the U.S. consulates will remain suspended indefinitely.  Currently scheduled appointments will be cancelled and applicants will be provided instructions on how to reschedule.  Please see our website and the attached Fact Sheet for further details."
