The Russia House has been involved with procuring Russian Visas since 1970! We have a team with some forty years experience in facilitating and providing services to foster Russo-British Trade. To the uninitiated obtaining a visa can be a complicated and time consuming procedure and requirements can change, therefore early visa application is essential, applicants can apply up to 6 weeks prior to departure.
We manage to stay ahead of the game and are proud to state: Russian Visa Procurement - Success on Time - Every Time!
Visa procuration has two stages:
1/ Support / Invitation from the Russian Ministry of Interior.
We will obtain this for you.
We need a clear colour copy of the information page of your passport, this must be centred on the page. Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We need your date of entry into Russia and the cities to be visited. Country and city that you wish to have your visa issued in is very important,
as you will need to present the documents to the Russian Consulate in the City of issue. Passport must have at least 6 months validity after the expiry of the passport and at least 2 blank pages.
Payment of Euro 180.00 – all major credit cards accepted. Payment to The Russia House Ltd.
