The citizens of Russia can get American visas at the US Embassy in Kyiv. The US Embassy to Ukraine published this statement at the official website.
‘People who usually live in Russia but who cannot appeal for a visa to the US in a proper time can apply for a visa in Kyiv. The applicants are not obliged to be the residents of Ukraine to get a visa in the US Embassy in Kyiv but should be physically present in Ukraine during the filling of application for a visa and getting a visa because we cannot accept the applications from the citizens via e-mail while they are beyond of Ukraine’, the message said.
The diplomats also note that the applicants should specify the local address in Ukraine during the sign up for the interview. It can be the address of the hotel, relatives or office. It is also needed that the applicant or his representative paid the visa fee at the Raiffeisen Bank in Ukraine until the assignment of the interview.
The issue of a passport will be possible only within the bounds of Ukraine in the case of the approval of a visa.
