I came here from the former Soviet Union or Russia and received US citizenship. Why do I have to confirm my lack of Russian citizenship to get a Russian visa?
If you are a Russian citizen and acquire U.S. citizenship, it does not mean that you automatically lose your Russian citizenship, because according to the law, no one can be deprived of his or her citizenship, except on his/her application (officially restored). Russian law does not prohibit you from having more than one citizenship, but only considers you to be a Russian citizen and therefore requires you to enter and leave Russia with Russian passports. As a state institution, the Consulate General ensures compliance with state law, so each person whose foreign passports or travel documents indicate his/her place of birth as "Russia" or "USSR", or one of the states that made up the former USSR, will need to provide evidence of the absence of Russian citizenship.
Although my passport says that I was born in Russia or the USSR, I know for sure that I am not a citizen of Russia, but all my documents that can confirm this fact are long lost. What am I doing?
You can send a special request to confirm the absence of Russian citizenship to the Russian authorities through the consulate.This takes time (1-6 months), so please contact in advance. After receiving the answer, the Consulate will issue you an official document confirming that you are no longer a Russian citizen.

Visa is not required for citizens of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. Visa is required for citizens of Estonia, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania and Turkmenistan.
