Russian Visa Arrangements

If you are traveling to Russia you need to obtain an appropriate visitor’s visa.

Getting a Russian visa is a two step process. First, you will need to get an official letter of invitation from a company authorized by the Russian Ministries of Foreign and Internal Affairs called Visa Support Document or Invitation. Then you will need to take this invitation along with the application form and two passport size photos and an original of your passport to the Russian Consulate in order to have your visa processed. A visa will be glued directly on one of the pages of your passport.

Please read our Terms and Conditions before requesting your visa support!

You have to choose a visa support type that best suits your purpose of travel. If you are travelling to Russia for general tourist purposes you will need a tourist invitation. Travel for other business purposes requires a business invitation as below. We will refer your visa support application to our partner company in Russia where it will be processed.

Attention! Due to Covid-19 epidemy the visa processing is temporarily suspended since March 18 by the Ministry Of Internal Affairs. The restrictions are likely to remain in force through September 15.

1. A tourist invitation is available for those who has a valid hotel reservation. A copy of your hotel booking confirmation should be enclosed to your online application. An invitation will be issued for the period of time covered by the booking.
2. To process the payment, we kindly ask that the actual card holder should fill out the payment authorization form (to download the form, click here). Please also provide a copy of the credit card so that the signature of the card holder can be checked against that on the payment authorization form. As you undoubtedly understand, these measures will protect the credit card holder's interests.
3. As a rule, Russian consulates in developing countries demand the invitation in original. The cost of the shipping via DHL depends on the destination. We will need to know your full postal address including post code, contact phone and contact person name. You can provide this information and approve the extra cost in the Comments field of your online application form and in the Payment Authorization Form.
