Visa to Russia

Visa to Russia

If you plan to travel to Russia you are required to have an entry visa. It does not matter do you wish to make tours to Moscow and St. Petersburg or to Irkutsk and Yekaterinburg.

Normal visa procedure takes about 1-2 weeks.

RESTEC EVENTS – one of the leading tour operator in Moscow and St. Petersburg – provides full support in receiving visas.
The business event participants are offered 2 options for issuing a visa to Russia – “Business” and “Tourism”. Both will permit you to come to Russia for the event however there are certain points we would like to draw you attention to.

Travel to Russia with business visa

There are some advantages and some drawbacks in this type of visa.

Pros:

  • The aim of the trip matches this visa type. A trip to the congress, exhibition, conference or meeting is a business trip, that is why business visa is more appropriate from the legal point of view. For taking part in the business one-entry visa with one-month length is quite enough.

Cons:

  • Time you spend to get this type of visa invitation. Usually consulate departments accept scanned copies of the invitations (you can get them via e-mail), but the original invitation may be also required.
  • Extra expenses. If consulate department needs the original invitation, it may involve extra expenses for sending the invitation via express delivery.
  • Additional documents. Consulate department may require any extra document which can take you extra time.
  • Price. One-entry for one month: 100 Euro


Tours to Russia with tourist visa

This type of visa is not ideal too.

Pros:

  • Fast issue procedure – tourist visa is ready in one working day, in some special cases in 3 days.
  • Price – the amount of money you spend for this type of visa is less than that for business invitation (one-entry for one month: 26 Euro).
  • When booking organization’s partner hotels you may get tourist visa support for free.

Cons:

  • The aim of the trip does not match this visa type. Tourist visa covers tourist trips only. A trip to the business event is not a tourist trip. Please, note, when applying for visa choose TOURISM as the aim of the trip.

Today tourism in Russia is permanent evolving and the visa process is simplified.

It will be very easy to obtain visa with the support of RESTEC EVENTS!
