Getting the Russian Visa
Although a fairly straightforward process, procuring visa for Russia can take up to 10 days, so be sure to apply well in advance. One must have an ‘invitation’ to be eligible for applying for a Tourist Visa to Russia. This invitation is nothing but an original document as a proof of your accommodation booked at a hotel. Do keep in mind that a photocopied or email version of the same will be no good. You can obtain this invitation from your hotel by paying a small fee of about 20 to 30 Euros. Courier charges will have to be borne by you OR save your time and just let us know your details & we will take care of everything. Contact ‘Visit Russia’ for any Visa related information.
