The new Russian Visa RegulationsThe new Regulations of getting Russian Business Visa for EU citizens come into effect on June 1. To obtain a Business Visa to Russia an applicant must now present an original invitation letter from the inviting Russian company to a Russian consulate or embassy abroad.
Unlike the previously used Letters Of Invitation, which were issued by Passport and Visa Department or Ministry of Foreighn Affairs, the new letters are to be written by the company itself on its stationery, signed by the Director and stamped.
N.B. The new Regulations concern ONLY EU citizens. Citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland and Denmark will require Letters of Invitation issued by Passport and Visa Department / Ministry of Foreighn Affairs to apply for their Russian visas.
However, as it often happens in Russia, even though the law is signed in the effect, the forms that will have to be used, requirements to the letter contents, the procedure of the letter approval and many other details have not yet been finalized. We urge you to contact affiliated agencies for up to date information.
