US Visa to Russia living in Eastern Europe
« on: October 21, 2016, 06:28:50 AM »
Hi all,
I've been here for a while but prefer to be silent. I am now active in dating FSU women and would appreciate your advice.

I am an American working back and forth between the US and eastern europe. I've been in contact with women and sifted thru the scammers and now find myself with a woman which I am willing to take a leap for.

Because I have no control over my schedule I am on short notice to leave for eastern europe. I would like to visit a FSU woman in Russia but do not have the time to mail my passport to a local US Consulant, schedule a hotel, and get all things in order in the US.

Would I be able to go to the Consultant in the country I am visiting in eastern europe to obtain a US visa?

All  opinions are appreciated!

Thank you!

Russian Consulates requirements for a visa to visit Russia vary in EU Countries, probably the easiest is Estonia, or Latvia..

The Americans who I know that live in Russia mostly go to Latvia for a visa renewal..

Pm me if you need the name and address etc of a reliable agency in Latvia..

HTH..

Oh yes they do.

They might be exceptional but they ain't that exceptional!

Presume that the visa is for living and working in the EU, is this correct??

What about someone who works for a US company, but has to be in a EU subsidiary for, say up to 3 months at a time??

Still need a work permit to do work, i.e. Not meetings, presentations etc, Schengen visa for those.

Within the EU and UK, the worst visa offenders are US citizens....

I am not a lawyer but I'd guess that if one were being paid from the USA and here to do work for the US business as an employee of the US business then for a short time one would be OK. You'd be a business visitor. There's limitations on that privilege though:

Business – General Activities

Attending pre-arranged meetings, conferences, seminars and interviews;
Speaking at a conference on a one-off basis or give a short series of talks and speeches (but only where it is not run as a commercial event and will not make a profit);
Negotiating and signing deals and contracts;
Attending trade fairs (if it is restricted to promotional work and does not involve selling direct to the public);
Carrying out site visits and inspections;
Gather information for the visitor’s employment overseas; and
Be briefed on the requirements of a UK based customer, provided any work for the customer is done outside of the UK.
Business – Corporate Activities

Board level directors attending board meetings in the UK provided they are not employed by a UK company.
An employee of an overseas based company may advise and consult, trouble-shoot, provide training, share skills and knowledge, on a specific internal project with UK employees of the same corporate group provided no work is directly carried out for clients;
An internal auditor may carry out regulatory or financial audits at a UK branch of the same group of companies as the visitor’s employer overseas;
a journalist, correspondent, producer or cameraman gathering information for an overseas publication, programme or film;
An employee of a foreign manufacturer or supplier may install, dismantle, repair, service or advise on equipment, computer software or hardware where it has a contract of purchase or supply or lease with a UK company or organisation;
A client of a UK export company may be seconded to the UK company, in order to oversee the requirements for goods and services that are being provided under contract by the UK company or its subsidiary company, provided the two companies are not part of the same group.
Interpreting or translating for visiting business persons;

From what I know, it isn't far different. I am sure Google can assist.
