Goals and Objectives
The Consulate is both an instrument of U.S. foreign policy and a service provider to American and Russian citizens. It concentrates its work in two areas:
- Consular Services. The Consulate's highest priority is the welfare and whereabouts of American citizens in our Consular District. Our Consular Section provides passport and other services to American travelers. The Consulate also issues visas to Russian residents who wish to travel to the U.S. Click here for Consular Services.
- Public Diplomacy. Our public diplomacy efforts seek to promote an open society and to increase direct contacts between Russians and Americans. Our exchange programs give Russians, from students to business people, an opportunity to travel to America for training. Through our daily press service, reporters can access the latest U.S. policy developments. Click here for Public Diplomacy.
