Wishing to apply for an entry permit in the United States need not be residents of Ukraine, but for obtaining visa they need to personally come to Kiev, as the Embassy does not accept application by mail. This is stated in the message published on the website of the us Embassy.
“All applicants must indicate a local address in Ukraine – hotel address, relatives, office during interview”, the report States. After receiving the visa, the passport will be possible only within Ukraine, said the U.S. Embassy in Kiev.
August 23 Washington has stopped issuing nonimmigrant visas throughout Russia. From September 1, the procedure is resumed, but only in the capital. In the US, explained that such measures were taken because of the decision of Moscow to reduce the size of the us diplomatic mission on the territory of the Russian Federation to 755. Embassy officials advised Russians to apply for entry permit at consulates in other States.
Recall that between Russia and Ukraine currently there is no direct flights. In this earlier independent authorities reported the intention to tighten the rules of entry for Russians — in this case for crossing the border would require a biometric passport and pre-filled electronic application form on the website of the Ukrainian interior Ministry. Later this idea was abandoned.
