The visa applicant must also fill out a visa application form and pay the visa processing fee.

He further argued that these “unprecedented” sanctions are having a “drastic impact on Russia,” with consequences such as a falling stock market and rising inflation in that country.Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba had called on Wednesday for European Union (EU) countries and the G7 club of industrialized nations, including the United States, to cease issuing visas to Russian citizens.Advertisement
Once the applicant has emailed this information to HavanaConsularInfo@state.gov, the Embassy will determine if we can schedule an emergency appointment for a visa interview. At the interview, the applicant must demonstrate that he or she is eligible to receive a visa under U.S. immigration law. Submitting an appointment request does not guarantee an appointment, and confirmation of an interview appointment does not guarantee visa approval.
Because the range of our services is limited, only scheduled visa applicants (whose names appear on the daily interview listings), those in possession of an embassy-issued pass, and U.S. citizens who need to be seen by the Citizen Services Unit are authorized access to the U.S. Embassy.

Russian passport (in Russian, Заграничный паспорт гражданина Росссийской Федерациии, transl. Foreign passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation) is a document issued by the Ministry of Internal Affairs to Russian citizens for international travel. This external Russian passport is different from the internal Russian passport, which is a mandatory identity document for travel and identification within Russia. Russian citizens must use their Russian passports when leaving or entering Russia, unless traveling to/from a country where the internal Russian ID is recognized as a valid travel document.
In addition to regular passports, there are two types of special passports for travel abroad: diplomatic passports and service passports (issued to government employees abroad on official business).
Foreigners coming to Russia faced various restrictions during the tsarist period; border magistrates could allow foreigners to pass within the state only with the permission of the higher government. During the Instability era, in order to travel within the country, so-called travel cards (in Russian, проезжие грамоты) were introduced, mainly for police control purposes. Peter I, by the decree of October 30, 1719, declared them mandatory for travel, following the imposition the compulsory military service and the capitation tax. In 1724, in order to avoid the possibility of evading the payment of the poll tax, special rules on peasants’ absences were established.
