DOS Announces U.S.-Russian Agreement on Visa Issuance

DOS Announces U.S.-Russian Agreement on Visa Issuance

Topic: Russia & Immigration

Exciting News Flash from Department of State for Russian Citizens:

Excerpted:

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov today announced an agreement
on the issuance of nonimmigrant business, tourist, private and humanitarian visas to the Russian Federation, and for
business and tourist visas to the United States, as well as short-term official travel visas to both counties in keeping with
the joint statement issued during the meeting of President Obama and President Medvedev in Deauville, France on May
26, 2011.

This agreement will facilitate travel between our two countries and establish stronger ties between our people. The
agreement benefits the largest segments of our traveling Americans and Russians - business travelers and tourists,
traveling both as individuals and in groups, by granting as a rule, on a reciprocal basis, multiple-entry visas valid for 36
months.

The agreement also streamlines the visa issuance process by reducing the documentation required. These new visa
validity periods will allow for expanded contacts and promote greater mutual understanding between our societies.
This agreement will go into effect after an exchange of diplomatic notes in Moscow.
