As a rule, every tourist from USA/UK/Australia/Europe/South Africa and quite a number of other countries arriving into Russian Federation by train, airplane or car, must have a valid Russian Visa for the entire period of stay.
This is not hard to get at all, especially after the new Visa laws have been approved by the government in 2012.
For regular TOURIST visas, the process is the following:
- Contact your local Russian Consulate in order to determine their requirements for obtaining your visa; If you don’t know exactly where your consulate is, use the Russian Consulate Locator
- Prepare the required package of documents and submit it to the Consulate
- Pick up your visa and check to make sure that the information is correct
Always, one of the documents required (apart from your passport, photo and the actual application) is the so-called Visa Support. ULKOtours PREMIUM provides all the necessary Visa Support documents (Tour Confirmation and Tour Voucher) for you to obtain the Russian Visa.
There's no additional charge to obtain the documents for ULKO's clients. If you're not an ULKOtours client, but would like to get Visa Support documents from us, a 30 USD fee will be charged per person.
If you don't want to bother with obtaining a Russian Visa yourself, we recommend that you contact your local agency recommended by the consulate (see your consulate's website for details)
