Notice for Visa Applicants Who Reside in the Russian Federation

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 Tbilisi. Applicants are not required to be a resident of Georgia to apply for a visa at Tbilisi, but must be physically present in Georgia at the time of visa application and visa interview, as we cannot accept mail-in applications from individuals while they are outside of Georgia. All applicants should include a local address in Georgia – hotel, relative, office – when scheduling an appointment for a visa interview.  Please note that the above information is subject to the restrictions described here.
