General information regarding the Russian visa issuance policy

General information and principles of issuing Russian visas. Please read that before visiting Russian Embassy or Russian Consulate.

Russian visa

A visa to the Russian Federation is a document, permitting stay in Russia for a specific period of time. Visa lists entry/exit dates, your name, passport details, and a purpose of travel.

It is important for you to apply for the right type of visa, the one that corresponds to the purpose of your trip, in order to enjoy your visit to Russia without legal problems, should it be a tourist journey, a home stay with a relative or friend, a business trip, or a transit.

The purposes of your visit to Russia - which you declare in your application form - should be confirmed by a letter of invitation you get from your host party according to the visa facilitation Agreements between the Russian Federation and EU or by official documents issued by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, its regional offices or the Russian Federal Migration Service or by a tourist contract - tourist voucher and tourist acceptance confirmation of a Russian tourist agency which should have its reference number.

Please be careful about the type of the visa you get which is issued in exact to the invitation you present in the consular section. Type of visa or dates of entry/departure can not be changed or extended.

As it was mentioned the actual purpose of a foreign citizen's entrance into the Russian Federation should correspond to the type of the issued visa. Thereby we do not recommend to resort to the services of an intermediate who suggests issuing tourist visa allowing a short-term stay in Russia to those persons that enter the country not for tourist purposes but for carrying on business. Nonconformity of the claimed entrance purpose with the actual one and the line of business during the stay in Russia is the violation of the entrance or residence regime. Responsibility for this violation is stipulated as a money penalty of 2 000 - 5 000 rubles. In-parallel with the money penalty it could be decided to enforce an administrative exclusion of a foreign national from the Russian Federation with the sequential exclusion for the 5-year term.

After the visa is received it should be checked by the traveler (spelling of the name, dates of travel, passport number, date of birth) and, if necessary, returned to the consular section for corrections.

Please be advised that one can not have two valid visas in one passport, in this case the first visa will be cancelled.

Russian Embassy or Russian consulate assist you with the following types of Russian visas:
