Photo: Alexander Shcherbak / TASS the Minister-adviser of visa questions of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow Michael Yoder has inspired in Russians visa optimism. He has suggested to hold "friendly competitions" between two countries on number of the issued visas in 2019 and has promised that the American Embassy will issue twice more visas to Russians, than Russia — to Americans. At a press conference in Vladivostok Yoder has told that he was surprised to the statement which a month ago the consul general of the Russian Federation had made in Houston — that the American side doesn't issue the visa to the Russian citizens. He has also not excluded opening in Moscow of additional windows for an interview on obtaining the American visa. "If the staff of embassy receives visas in the fall, there will be nine windows" — Yoder has told. He is quoted by Interfax. However in practice so far improvements in obtaining the American visas aren't too noticeable, the executive director of American Travel Company Elena Gubareva:elena Gubareva the executive director of American Travel Company "Has told the situation was complicated by the fact that a large number of employees in consular services therefore we rather long period of time couldn't make out in general in Russia visas is laid off. It was necessary to look for some ways to issue the visa to Russians in the nearby countries. But so far the situation cardinally hasn't changed, that is we as make out the most part of visas to Russians not in the territory of Russia, so this situation so far and proceeds therefore this statement encourages. Perhaps, now, in the nearest future, something will significantly change because the procedure simple in itself. An opportunity to file documents on the visa in Russia — here in it all problem at present. But gradually windows on record, including, and in Moscow, not only in Vladivostok began to open already at us. That is we give already on the visa in Russia, but it is so far very small percent. We wait for improvements". Yoder has added what isn't important who will win a friendly visa competition between consulates of Russia and the USA. If more tourists go to both countries, then will win everything. Problems with issue of the American visas to Russians have begun a year ago when Russia has demanded from the USA to reduce the number of workers of dipuchrezhdeniye to bring it into accord with number of workers of the Russian dipuchrezhdeniye in the USA. In reply the State Department has demanded to close the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco.

In March U.S. authorities have sent 60 Russian diplomats and have closed Consulate General in Seattle. Moscow has sent 60 American diplomats and has closed Consulate General of the USA in St. Petersburg. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
