Since January 16, the Consular Section of the US Embassy in Moscow will start accepting visitors to a new address. An official report on this came from the American embassy.
“The consulate will be located in a new building on the territory of the US Embassy complex, which is equipped in the most modern way, designed to meet the needs of people with disabilities and meets the high security standards adopted by the US State Department in recent years,” the embassy said.
It is known that the capacity of the new premises of the consular department is much higher than before: only on the first floor are 23 windows for interviewing.
“However, at present, the staff of the consulate is sufficient to open only half of them because the personnel of the US diplomatic mission in the Russian Federation was significantly reduced in August 2017 at the request of the Russian side,” the report said. The design of the new building, according to the embassy, is inspired by the theme of space and its research. “Direct interaction between people, which includes tourist exchanges and cooperation in the field of business, is the cornerstone of long-term relations between the US and Russia. Therefore, we consider it extremely important to create comfortable conditions for receiving consular services, “said US Consul General in the Russian Federation Lawrence Toby.
The construction of the new building began in 2013 on the site of the demolished residential apartments of the US Embassy in Moscow. In addition to the consular department, there will be other offices of the US Embassy in Moscow and accommodation for American diplomats. It is worth noting that electronic devices, including cellular phones, can not be carried to the territory of the consulate, there are no storage cells for them. New address of the consular department of the US Embassy in Moscow – Bolshaya Devyatinsky Lane, 8.
