Russia - Visas, Residency, Immigration & DocumentationPage: 1/4
All foreign nationals entering Russia require must hold an entry visa and a valid 10-year passport. In order to obtain an entry visa it is first necessary to secure a letter of invitation from the Ministry of Interior of the Russian Federation. This is issued on application to the Ministry by the company, individual or travel agency in Russia that is sponsoring your visit. Various on-line agencies can arrange this on behalf of short-term visitors. It normally takes 2-3 weeks for the consulate to issue a visa, and the current fee is US$100, with higher fees payable for faster processing. An exit visa is normally included with the entry visa. If you only require an entry visa you will be required to submit an HIV test certificate. Once in Russia, you are required by law to carry identification in the form of your passport and visa, or copies of them, at all times.
People who are going to work for a Russian company or a foreign company based in Russia must obtain a work permit and a work visa.
