Visa Information

A foreign visitor travelling to Russia must apply for a Russian tourist visa at the Russian Consulate or via the Russian Visa Centre.

A foreign citizen can obtain a Russian visa only in the country of his/her citizenship. Exceptions include those who have a residence permit for a foreign country for the period more than 90 days.

However, the final decision is left up to the consulates. We recommend that you get in touch with the Russian consulate or visa centre in the country of your current location for up to date application requirements in order to make sure that your application will be accepted.
