NOTICE FOR VISA APPLICANTS WHO RESIDE IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION

Individuals who normally reside in Russia, but who are unable to apply for a U.S. visa in a timely manner may submit their application in Astana or Almaty. Applicants are not required to be a resident of Kazakhstan to apply for a visa at Astana or Almaty, but must be physically present in Kazakhstan at the time of visa application and visa interview, as we cannot accept mail-in applications from individuals while they are outside of Kazakhstan. Minors should always be present at the time of interview. All applicants should include a local address in Kazakhstan– hotel, relative, office – when scheduling an appointment for a visa interview.
