CONSULAR SECTION INFORMS

20.03.2018

Operational changes in the Consular Section of the Embassy

As a result of the irresponsible actions of the UK Government, which lead to an expulsion of 23 diplomats of the Russian Embassy, including a number of Consular Section staff, the consular service for applicants has been seriously affected.

This leaves us no option but to temporarily limit the number of all visitors. The Embassy is doing its best to reestablish the ordinary workflow for the best functioning of the Consular Section, especially when it comes to providing assistance to Russian citizens and compatriots.

Given the circumstances, caused by the British side, the processing times for visa applicants will be increased: expedited processing time is up to three business days, and regular processing is up to twenty business days, consistent with the Russian law and in accordance with the current consular Tariff rates. As for the nationals of the countries that have visa agreements with Russia, processing times remain as outlined in those agreements.
