Residents of the occupied Crimea need to apply to Kyiv to the U.S. visa as the Crimea belongs to the consular district of the U.S. embassy in Kyiv. The press service of the Embassy of the United States of America in Moscow announced that, UNIAN reported.
"The Crimea belongs to the consular district of the U.S. embassy in Kyiv. All the Crimea residents, who request for the U.S. immigration or fiancé visas, should address to Kyiv, regardless of their citizenship,” reads the message.
It is also noted that consular fees paid in Ukraine can’t be used in the embassy or consulate in the Russian Federation and vice versa.
As it was reported earlier, the United States, in response to the reduction in the number of diplomatic mission employees in the Russian Federation, decided to suspend the procedure for issuing non-immigrant visas throughout Russia from August 23.
