Visa to Russia

It is necessary to make a VISA application before entering Russia.

You may follow these steps in the TOURIST VISA application process:

  • A) Assign a visa application to the travel agent in YOUR country;
  • OR
  • B) Apply for a Russian visa with our assistance. If you apply for a Russian visa with our assistance, you must order TOUR and VISA SUPPORT* at our company and submit all the necessary documents (two colored photo ID, a filled-out visa application form, current valid ORIGINAL passport, the proof of payment of the consular fee, medical insurance, the agreement of taxable capacity). A complete set of documents must be submitted to the Embassy of the Russian Federation in your country.

The procedure for issuing a tourist visa takes about 1 to 2 weeks. The term of the visa application process depends on the certain Consulate.

You must obtain a migration registration, by registering with the migration service of the Russian Federation within the first 7 days of arrival (excluding weekends and holidays). In the case of living in the hotel, a hotel manager in charge should take care of your migration registration. Thus, you should stay at the hotel only for the duration of your trip. If you violate the registration regulations, you may have mishaps with the Migration Agency.

We would give you an example of the contents of the migration card following the processing of the visa.
