*Please include embassy fees, our service fees and return delivery payment or a completed air bill. Incomplete payment, incomplete applications or documents and wrong application form will cause a delay in processing the above visa application.
** The service fees are non-refundable, once we receive your documents and start processing them. Due to the high volume of applications being submitted, the processing times may be delayed by the Passport Agency. While such situations are beyond our control, we will do everything possible to accommodate your trip and will call you immediately to let you know about the status of your application.
Former Russian Citizens: if your country of birth listed in the US passport is Russia, you will HAVE TO provide proof that you left Russia before 1991 or a copy of your Naturalization Certificate issued on or before 2001. If you do not have such proof or left after 1991, you are still considered a Russian citizen, therefore, must travel on both Russian and US passports. Russian visas will not be issued. For former citizens of Soviet Union (Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, etc) a copy of your expired national passport is required in order to issue a visa.
