Hi

My wife's Russian International passport expires in the next few motnhs. We are in the process of renewal at the Seattle Consulate. She has to apply in person and she also has to fill out an on-line application within 3 days prior to her visit. Question # 8 of the online application asks for the purpose of geting the passport- there is a drop down menu with 2 possible answers - 1) For temporary visits abroad and 2) For living abroad. So ehere are our qeustions: if she checks the living abroad option [she actually leaves here in the US] does that mean she will have to register in the consulate and loose her propiska in Russia?? Or should she check the "temporary living abroad option because of the fact that she is a Russian Citizen implies that she is here in the US temporarily?? We are not sure how the consulate would interpret the answer?

Can anybody help??

Thank You in advance

If your wife has a propiska in Russia, she should choose "for temporary visits abroad". Her permanent status in the US in this case is irrelevant.
