Getting a Russian visa is now a time-saving and traveller-friendly procedure.
Before arranging to visit Russia, people from most countries must apply for a Russian visa. Visas cannot be obtained at the border, so you are strongly advised to apply in advance in our offices in London or in Edinburgh.
Application forms must be filled in online, then printed out and signed by the applicants. The Russian Consulate decides on each application, and the payment of visa fees does not guarantee that a visa will be granted.
Here at the Russian National Tourist Office, you can order a single or double entry tourist visa valid for up to 30 days and a single/double business visa valid for up to 3 months, or a multiple entry business visa valid for 1 year.
