Tourist visa support to Russia

In order to travel to Russia an entry visa is of mandatory acquisition for the majority of foreign visitors: the visa must be obtained before submitting an application to the Russian consulate or any other competent issuing entity in your country of citizenship or residence.

The Russian border authority will deny entry to the Russian Federation to any traveler lacking an appropriate visa, whenever such document is required.

The documents for the visa application vary according to the visa category (Tourist, Business, Work, Study, Transit, Private and others) and may differ from country to country.

Down below you will find a list of documents that the Russian consulate usually requires in order to file a visa application:

Visa Support: tourist Invitation Letter
The tourist invitation letter (also known as Reservation Confirmation) is a visa support document required to submit a tourist visa application to Russia. A tourist invitation must be obtained from an authorized entity (e.g. hotel, travel agency), included in the Uniform Federal Register of the Tour Operators of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the RF and must contain detailed information about the travel (dates, accommodation, itinerary, visit programme, etc.).
