"Copies and translations of each document into English are required. Translations must be notarized only when the original is in a language OTHER than Russian. (e.g. a translation from Ukrainian into English must be notarized, translation from Russian into English does not need to be notarized)."

Do I need to translate vaccination record in English for the interview?

No. You are going to have the medical, right? At the clinic they will fill out a DS-3025 with your vaccination record (in English). Be sure to get a copy of this form as it will save you time and effort later.


If at first you don't succeed, then sky diving is not for you.

Someone stole my dictionary. Now I am at a loss for words.

Do I need to translate vaccination record in English for the interview?

No. Bring your vaccination records to the medical exam and ask for them to transcribe it onto the DS 3025 form. I think they have a small fee of $20 for this in Moscow, it is free in Kiev. It is worth the $20.

You do not state what visa you are applying for. If it is for a K-1, vaccination records are not needed at all for the interview, but bring them to the medical anyway and get the DS-3025. It will save you a LOT of time and money later. make sure you do not leave until you have the DS-3025 and your original vaccination reords back IN YOUR HAND. For a K-1 the vacination records are DS3025 go with YOU.

Not applicable to vaccination records. No timeline information from the OP so we do not even know if she needs vaccination records at all and even if she does, this is handled by at the medical exam and not presented to the consulate at the interview for a K-1

Thanks. I am applying for IR-1. Does it mean I need vaccination record (not translated)and DS-3025 for the interview?

Yes, for the IR-1 they will enclose the DS-3025 in your medical exam which is given to you in an envelope to give to the consulate. They can administer any needed vaccinations at the medical (for a fee, of course)Bring your Russian vaccination records with you to the medical exam.

When I had my medical exam at IOM they automatically charged me extra $20 for the vaccination record. I brought all my papers to the IOM medical center and they transferred all my vaccination records into a single, standard government-issue form in English. They give this form to you separately from the sealed manila envelope and you don't need to present it at the Embassy (the manila envelope contains everything needed, so no worries outside of that). I've already used this form once - it came very handy.

So no, don't translate anything yourself, just bring all your records to your medical exam.
