International Adoption - Russia

Important Tips

In order to assist U.S. parents in the processing of Immigrant Visas for their adopted children, the U.S. Embassy suggests the following:

  • check and double check the validity dates on fingerprint clearances, home studies and I-600A forms;
  • review the checklists to insure all documentary requirements are met;
  • complete the medical exam(s) prior to the interview; and,
  • help us help you by keeping to intake hours of 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. and established interview times.

In this way, delays, expense, and inconvenience can be avoided and minimized.

Appointments will be required to submit the I-600, supporting documents, and visa application materials. For complete information on procedures and requirements, as well as instructions for scheduling an appointment please refer to the website for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Moscow Field Office
