Russian visas a letter of invitation supports

Visa is a document that entitles an foreign national to cross the borders of Russia for a specified purpose within a specified period of time. Visas are only granted if you have a letter of invitation. The letter also determines the type of Russian entry visa you will get:

  • tourist visa for sightseeing;
  • business visa for negotiations and meeting your customers;
  • private or guest visa for visiting your relatives (longest visa processing of all types);
  • work visa for making money in Russia;
  • student visa for studies;
