After my trip to Russia from India I’ve understood the meaning: “A traveler without observation is a bird without wings”. Every city I’ve travelled to, such as Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Sochi, I’ve got new experience! A new place is oversaturated with unexplored smells, tastes, colors and sounds, and all you need is to tune in with them “on the same wavelength”.
Before visit Russia from India you need to think in advance about visa. I’d like to recommend you follow easy steps which will help you to get it faster.
First of all, visa for Russia is of different types: a transit visa (you travel via Russia to another country), a tourist visa (a short visit up o 14 days), a business single/double entry (visit your relatives or mates and get registered with them up to 1,5 months) or a business multiple entry (total period of visit is up to 3 months).
Secondly, apply for invitation of chosen type of visa. Russian Travel Management Company arranges visa support for you. Anyway, you should keep an eye on company’s experience in this field, it’s possibility to provide you with registration and exceptional cases. As well, MICE Tour Operator in India will be able to provide you with professional advice and help to plan your stay and make it unforgettable, as I had!
The last point is getting Russian visa itself via Embassy or Consulate. The latter way can take more time, but you may save money. If you don’t want to spend a whole day standing in a line, you may send a query to Russian travel agent in India with the best expertise.
As you can see, “The devil is not so black as he is painted” and travelling to Russia can turn into easy and memorable journey.
