Visa Payment for Russian beneficiary and child

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

To whom it may concern:

I need some help. I need to pay for the Visa to get the interview scheduled at the embassy in Moscow and I have a couple of questions.

1. Can my fiancee use my credit card for online credit card payment of the visa?

2. It only asks for $350 for payment of the visa so that we can schedule the appointment. Where / when do I pay for her son's visa?

Thanks in advance for your help.

As far as I know, online credit card payment isn't possible but perhaps there are particulars at your embassy that make it possible though I very much doubt it. If her son is relocating with her, then you have to pay for his visa at the same time because he has to be given a visa too together with your fiancee.

All the best!

There is a voice calling, keep walking

You’re not alone in this world

Where there is faith

There is a peace like a child sleeping

Hope everlasting in He who is able...

It is a wonderful, powerful place

Where there is faith" 4Him

Thanks for your response. The Embassy in Moscow does accept online credit card payments. They are very specific about asking for $350 for the visa so that the interview can be scheduled. Obviously this is the cost of only one visa. I think they changed the system they use at the Embassy in Moscow in the last year. I am hoping someone has been through this specifically for a Russian beneficiary can offer some advice.

Thanks again for your help.

I've asked the Mods to move this to the RUB regional forum where you'll get the correct answers from folks who are going through or recently been through Moscow.

Yes you can. set up your account here. http://cgifederal.force.com/ Just hope you can get an appointment date. there dont seem to be any available

Thanks.

My fiancee has already created a profile here. There is no where to add her son to her profile. He is 5. He needs his own profile? I know they must both be at the same interview so it doesn't make sense to have a separate profile for him and schedule a separate appointment.

If he's going to be a K-2, then normally he just tags along with his mother. You list him on the DS-156K for your intention for him.

Thanks for the response. We are going to try it that way. I had received an email for the embassy to schedule the appointment which I forwarded to my fiancee. She received a letter in the mail yesterday that basically said the same thing. The notification that was sent to her had both her and her son's name on it though. I guess I'll pay for her visa so we can get it scheduled and take it from there.

Don't forget that you have to make a visa payment for the child as well and he has to have his own medical performed.

Thanks. This is the real issue. There is no where to add him to her profile on the web form. At the main dashboard page for her login there is a section that says "family members". Here it says "0". There is no way that either of us can see to add family members. So it only asks for $350 payment for her visa.

I don't know what to do. I've tried calling every number for the Moscow embassy I have found in documentation. The 888 number that is given doesn't work. One of the +7 Russian numbers works but the people that answer the phone do not speak English at all and my Russian is extremely limited at this point. The other numbers don't work.

Thanks. I finally found a phone number that took me through an IVR system that eventually enabled me to speak with someone at the embassy in Moscow. They said I had to create a separate profile for my fiancee's son on the cgifederal.force.com site and to schedule his interview directly after her interview in the system.

I will schedule the interview by phone now through this number anyway after we make the payment for the visas. Also, I learned that while they do take online credit card payments for visas and that someone other than the beneficiary's credit card can be used; the credit card must be a Russian (rubles based) credit card.
