Dear Mr. Consul, I am a Professor at the University of South Carolina (Department of Mathematics, Columbia, SC), since 1993. By my initiative, in October of t last year, USC issued an invitation for Professor Magomed A. Chakhkiev, who works in Moscow, to visit USC. The American Embassy requested Prof. Chakhkiev to provide additional materials (full list of his scientific publications) in support of his application for the B-type visa, which he duly provided in December of 2008. However, until now the problem with his visa remains unresolved, although I addressed (via e-mail) Mr. Ambassador of the United States with a request to expedite the process. I do not think that there are any grounds for such purely bureaucratic delays in this case. I ask you to look into this problem, and resolve it. Thank you in advance. Sincerely yours - K. Oskolkov, Professor. // Konstantin Oskolkov

USA has incredible strict visa policy to RF citizens. My brother can not get visa to visit our sick, 88 years old parents in CA. Yet, people crossing the border from Mexico on hourly bases, come and go as they pleased, live and work in CA without any problems. Whats the point of this hypocrisy? When restrictions will be lifted? // Victor Lee

Dear Mr Consul, I have a question on a pretty standard situation: I am a legal resident and would like my parents to come and visit. I've been pushing them for many months now. Their excuses run mainly about the visa - too much uncertainty, time, money. They are both over 70 y.o and live 1.5 thousand km from Yekaterinburg (and even further of course from Moscow). They both still work (professors) and have short windows of opportunity for the visit. Is there any chance to waive the interview for people like them? They would of course never ever think of staying in the US, with all their settled life in Russia. I really want them to come and see America, and a simplified visa procedure could probably make a difference. Thanks a lot and all the best. // Alla

Last 15 years I have never had any obstacles in receiving visas for scientific travels to European contries. The procedure always took from 1 day to 1 week, and it is for free. All contries have special agreements facilitating scientific exchanges. The US rules for non-immigrant scientific visits look like the most restrictive ones in the world. As a result of this politics, international conferences being held in US, loose a non-negligible part of scientific audience. I wish US to lower this "iron curtain" and to become a more open country. This is in a mutual interest of both American and Russian science. //

Dear Mr. Amend, I've missed a conference waiting the solution on my visa application. The administrative processing is continued now. I have two questions related to the situation. 1. Can I interrupt the process and get my passport back? 2. Let's suppose that I will get the visa in some future. May I use it to attend an another conference? I mean that details of my visit indicated in the visa application form (address, contact person and so on) would differ from real ones. Thank you. //

Dear Consul General, I visited the US several times for business purposes since 2002. Last year when I applied for visa my documents were sent to so called "administrative check" and visa was issued then. This year when I applied for visa (while my current visa is still valid) my documents were sent to "administrative check" again, and I will propably miss important conference. Is administrative check obligatory now? Yours respectfully, Dmitry // Dmitry Prudnikov

Dear Mr Consul General, would you please say when preliminary DV-2010 lottery results are likely to be expected? The instruction mentions March, is it going to be as early this year too? Thank You! Sincerely, Constantine //

A simple question that has always been bothering me. Why can't animmigration agency take a deposit (say \$5000) that can be claimed by the visitor only when he returns back to his home country and only before a certain date. This would solve all these ridiculous problems with the requests to prove that you will return back. Any commercial organization would have done it ages ago. I dont see any other answer except that no matter how different are the countries they have always one thing in common: stupid beaurocracy. And so far I have to repeat what has been said above. This is a very interesting country but not a place I would recommend anyone to go to. Life is too short to waste it this way. There are worse countries in this respect, like Canada, but this is not smthing you should be proud of. // programmist

Dear general consul of USA: To receive the American visas people pass through humiliating procedures, waste time, nerves, health. What purposes and the reasons of all these procedures. All terrorists already in USA, they wait for you. Look at the borders with Mexico and Canada. With Mexico you hold border open in order to Mexicans could work at those workplaces where the whites do not want to work. The border between USA and Canada is not protected too. Canada accepts everybody who wants to work on underpaid job places. My friend forged canadian immigration papers and he is already in Canada. Who knows may be he is a terrorist. It would be better to put all your energy, skills, background in this direction. // Alex

Dear Mr. Amend, You are certainly aware that getting US visa, even if ultimately successful, might be a painfully lengthy process. Nevertheless, I always admired professionalism and efficiency of American officials and US consulate in Moscow is no exception. Right on the form every applicant fills out there is an estimated time for this form processing. Certainly, consulate and other agencies dealing with visa applicants keep track of the number of applications and can easily foresee how much work will have to be done in the near future. Therefore, correct estimation of the time required to process each application doesnt look like a difficult task for agency as efficient as consulate and others taking part in the visa process. On the other hand, being suspended for undefined period of time is, to put it mild, inconvenient for applicants. I know not one case, when careers were ruined because of this uncertainty. Although not so extreme, but very tough case I now experience myself. My parents are waiting for visa to visit me in the States, and despite they applied well in advance, our carefully planed vacation is already messed. Do you think there is any way consulate could provide more accurate and case-specific estimate of the time needed for application processing? // Artem Lebedev

Dear Consular, I'm the USA citizen, living in the USA for the past 17 years. For the last 15 years I'm trying to invite my sister to visit USA for tourism purpose and to see hew nephews who are now 26 and 18 years old and whom she hasnt seen for 15 years. My sister had applied for non-immigrant visa several times but was turned down for the reason of not demonstrating that she has strong ties in Russia that would compel her to leave the U.S. at the end of the temporary stay. Yes, she doesnt own a mansion and doesnt have millions in the bank but I believe that its not the reason to deny her visiting us. She doesnt own a business or a yacht but it shouldnt prevent her nephews to see their aunt who was babysitting them 17 years ago. To prove that she has no intention to permanently stay in the United States I can point out that ever since I came to the United States I asked my sister if she wants to immigrate to the United States and she always maintains that she doesnt want to live anywhere but Russia. Otherwise I would've filled out the Petition for Alien Relative to apply for the immigrant visa. She owns an apartment in Russia and had a steady job. Six months ago she was diagnosed with the ovarian cancer and went thru the surgery. She is now cancer free and receives government assistance as she recovers after the surgery. She wants to be able to see her nephews that she has not seen for 15 years and I want to show her our life here in the United States. I always dream of her seeing Niagara Falls and Disney world, walk along Broadway and take a river tour around New York City. How can she convince you that she is just trying to come to USA for a visit? //

Dear mr. Amend, please comment on long administrative processing delays, that some categories of the business, technical and scientific visitors are facing. When the crisis deepens, I am sure it is quintessential for Russians and the Americans to work togher and stay united in the face of world economic downturn. It may be mutually benefitial to intensify trade and business between our two countries, It is Ivan the Plumber and the Joe the Plumber who got hit most hard by all these circuimstances on both sides of the Ocean. Thank you for taking your time to answer, Dmitry //
