Assistance with Russian Visa

We strive to set the very highest standards and best practices when arranging your holiday to this fascinating destination. We have years of practical experience in dealing with tourist visas to Russia, and our in-house visa team provides assistance in completing the forms and checking the documents before consular submission.

Your tour price includes ALL consular and visa processing fees (standard processing).

Note – urgent visa applications are subject to a surcharge.
Please note, in the USA you can apply for your Russian visa NO EARLIER THAN THREE MONTHS before your arrival date in Russia.

Once you book a tour with us and pay your deposit we email you the guidance notes on how to complete the Russian visa application form. You will then need to fill in the required form yourself which is quite straightforward. Our dedicated visa specialists will be happy to provide assistance should you have any questions or difficulties in completing the form (we can also complete it for you for a fee of just $25). All  completed forms are then checked by our visa specialists and our visa department advises if any additional corrections or documents are required. We guarantee your application pack will be fully compliant with the Russian visa requirements and there will be no need to make further corrections at the submission stage and no need to worry that any data could be missing.


Standard processing of your Russian visa is included in the price of our holidays and we can obtain your visas for you if you live in the USA, UK or Germany. All urgent visa applications are subject to additional costs which will be reconfirmed to you at the time you submit your documents. You post your complete application pack to our local visa processing office and we make final checks of your paperwork and submit your documents to the Russian consulate. Once the visa is issued, we post your passport back to you.


If you are resident in a different country, we will provide an official tourist voucher for you and you can apply for your visa at the local Russian consulate in the country of your residence. Following our fair dealing policy we will also deduct the consular fee from your invoice as you will have to pay for your visa yourself.
We guarantee smooth documents submission with no misunderstandings and visa fees settled directly by us.
