      Frequently Asked Questions about Russia visa

      • What types of visa durations can be applied for?
        Single-Entry allows the foreign national a one-time entry into the borders of the Russian Federation. Double-Entry allows the foreign national to enter and exit the Russian border of no more than two times. Multi-Entry allows for unlimited entry into the Russian Federation within the visa period.
      • I am not a citizen of the european union, how may I obtain a visa?
        Non-EU citizens may apply for a Russian visa via invitation, or an invitation granted by the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation, or by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In this case, if the nationality of the individual must be indicated via supporting documents that indicate their status in such country. Such as a home registry, work authorization, or a copy of your lease agreement, or a copy of the electric bill.
      • What type of insurance do I need? (for eu citizens only)
        US citizens do not require proof of health insurance! For citizens of the Schengen Agreement, a copy of your health insurance card and the insurance policy valid in Russia for the full visa period is required; this excludes any parallel agreements between individual countries that may contradict this. If you are not a EU citizen, please inquire whether you would need to provide a copy of your health insurance from a Visa Center operator. The policy must include information about which hospitals or clinics accept your insurance in case of emergency. Applicants seeking a multi-entry visa need to show proof of insurance that covers their first trip only.
      • Can I apply for two visas simultaneously?
        Unfortunately not, according to the laws of the Russian Federation, you may only have one current Russian visa in your international passport. If your passport already contains an active Russian visa that has not been used (such as a single or double-entry visa with one entry left, or an unused multi-entry visa), we recommend that you apply for a new visa no less than 10 days prior to it's expiry.
      • Under what cirmustances do we require original documents, what are they?
        Only the originals of the following documents are accepted: - Passport, valid for six months after the visa expiry date; - Visa application, printed and signed by hand. Signature must match that of the passport; - Passport-style Photograph(s); - Invitation for Private type 1 visa, Work visa, Student visa, Humanitarian visa single, double, or 1 year multi-entry must all be issued by the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation (FMS) at the request of the inviting party. This excludes 3-year visas, for which copies of the invitations are accepted.
