   GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT RUSSIAN VISAS

Russian Visa Service   Please, read it carefully before you send us any questions like - "How do I apply for my visa", or "What information do you need to issue my visa support (visa invitation)", or " What is the difference between visa support (visa invitation) and visa "… - We tried to make this answer your questions before you asked them.

   There are two most popular types of Russian visas - "tourist" and "business" . In most cases you should be satisfied with a "tourist" visa unless you are planning to come to Russia for longer than 30 days. In this case you should apply for a "business" visa. And if you need a multi entry visa then, of course, we are talking about "business" visas.

 Frequently Asked Questions :

  What is the difference between visa and "visa support" ?
  Can you process my visa for me ?
  Why don't you issue 3 month tourist visas anymore ?
  OK, then, how do I get a business visa? And how much does it cost? Can I just get a business invitation from your company ?

 What is the difference between visa and "visa support" ?

Tourist Visa Support  Visa support (or "invitation" ) is a paper you use to obtain your visa from the Russian Consulate in your country. Tourist visa support consists of two papers - "voucher" and so-called "confirmation of tourist acceptance" . Both papers are required for visa processing.

   If you are brave enough to work with the Russian Consulate just yourself then you can request your papers from us by submitting the "Tourist Visa Application Form" . The total cost for a Russian tourist visa support is US$ 40 per person. Group discounts are available upon request.

   Usually it takes us about 30 minutes to a few hours to prepare your papers and fax them to you. In rare cases when we are overloaded with work it may take us up to 24 hours (but not longer) to process your request. We work on Saturdays and Sundays to meet your needs.

   Can you process my visa for me ?

Russian Tourist Visa   If you have never dealt with the Russian Consulate yourself and if you are a USA citizen we can process your visa for you. First of all you must complete "Tourist Visa Application Form" . Then we would need you to prepare the following documentation and mail it to our FL address:

 1. A copy of the vital pages of your valid Passport . Holders of travel documents other than passports (Permit to Reenter the United States of America, Refugee Travel Document, etc.) must also submit a copy of both sides of their “green card”.

 2.Original passport. Only copies are no longer accepted! Russian visas are attached to passports now. Passport must contain at least one blank page marked "visas", otherwise the passport will not be accepted and will be returned .

 3. Application form [ MS Office Word file format - form95.doc ] , completed and signed. f you are unable to download the application, please, let us know your fax number and we would immediately fax you a copy.)

 4. One recent passport-size photograph, signed on the back.

  Visa extension or corrections are no longer possible. In case visa requires extension or correction, applicant will have to reapply for a new visa. The Consulate will not bear any responsibility for the errors in visas, which were not brought to our attention immediately upon receipt of the visas from the Russian Consulate.

  No medical insurance is officially required for the US citizens, unless they stay in Russia for 6 months or more. Prior to your visit, consult your medical insurance issuer for details. On the basis of reciprocity mandatory medical insurance is required for the citizens of Estonia, Israel and Finland, as well as for the citizens of Schengen Agreement Member-States (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain).

   Why don't you issue 3 month tourist visas anymore ?

   Very good question. We do NOT issue visas at all. We just work with the Russian Consulates in the USA and make sure that your papers are in perfect order before they go to the Russian Consulate. We have no a single visa denial in our history. As to 3 month tourist visas - they just do not exist anymore. If you need a visa longer than 30 days then the only option for you is to get a business visa. Business visas can be up to 12 months.

    OK, then, how do I get a business visa? And how much does it cost?
     Can I just get a  business invitation from your company ?

Russian Business Visa    Russian Business Visa is supposed to be issued for the people, who come to Russia for business purposes. But because this type of visa allows long stays, multiple entries etc., it is also used by ordinary travelers, who need more flexibility. To obtain a "business visa invitation" complete the Business Visa Application Form. Please do not leave blank fields.

All business applications are accepted no earlier than in 45 days before the requested entry date to Russia. Unlike tourist vouchers, which may be processed any time of the year by our manager, business invitations are processed by UVIR which does not accept documents before the mentioned term under no circumstances.

For paper invitations: the price doesn't include shipment (approx. $90 to Europe/USA). Some Consulates allow scanned copies, in this case no shipment will be needed.

If you choose the Telex option, please contact your Consulate to make sure it accepts Telex invitation and find out their Telex number.


Please contact us for full business visa processing fees (for some visa types, cheaper or more urgent options are available).
