The Consulate General protects rights and interests of the Russian Federation, of the Russian nationals, both individuals and bodies corporate; furthers the development of commercial, economic, cultural and scientific relations between Russia and the United States and otherwise promotes friendly relations between two countries; exercises full scale of official consular functions envisaged by the legislation of the Russian Federation, bilateral Convention on consular relations as well as other principles of international law.
The Consulate General exercises consular functions for the sake of the Russian nationals permanently residing inside its consular district or temporarily visiting the United States; American citizens; stateless persons, as well as nationals of a third state legally visiting the United States.
A part of the Consulate General are passport and visa sections, open for the public daily, except week-ends and holidays, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Mondays through Thursdays); from 9:00 a.m. to 01:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (on Fridays).
IN ORDER TO ENSURE A MORE EFFECTIVE PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND INTERESTS OF RUSSIAN CHILDREN IN U.S. FOSTER FAMILIES, THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION AND RUSSIAN FOREIGN MISSIONS IN THE U.S. INVITE ALL ADOPTED COMPATRIOTS, ALONG WITH THEIR ADOPTIVE PARENTS TO CONTACT THE RUSSIAN CONSULAR POSTS FOR VERIFICATION OF PERSONAL DATA AND CONSULAR REGISTRATION.
INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE PERIOD BEFORE THE PASSING OF THE REGULATION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION #275 OF MARCH 29TH, 2000, WHICH INTRODUCED NEW PRINCIPLES ON MANDATORY CONSULAR REGISTRATION OF RUSSIAN CHILDREN ADOPTED BY FOREIGN CITIZENS AND PERSONS WITHOUT CITIZENSHIP, IS OF SPECIAL INTEREST.
THIS WILL ALLOW TO CREATE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF CHILDREN FROM RUSSIA CURRENTLY LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES, IN ORDER TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO PROVIDE CONSULAR AND LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN CASE OF EMERGENCY. WE WOULD APPRECIATE UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION OF THE ADOPTIVE PARENTS IN THIS MATTER.
WE ALSO WELCOME ANY INFORMATION FROM PUBLIC ORGANIZATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS ABOUT RUSSIAN CHILDREN IN THE U.S., WHO HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES IN POOR CONDITIONS AND ARE IN NEED OF SUPPORT. WE EXPECT THAT COMPATRIOT ORGANIZATIONS WILL BE ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN THIS IMPORTANT WORK UTILIZING THEIR INFORMATIONAL RESOURCES AND CONTACTS.
