types of Russian visa.
Russian Tourist Visas
Russian tourist visas are for stays of 30 days or less.
According to Russian law it is illegal for a hotel to
provide you with an invitation if you are not going to stay
there but this law is broken more often than it is followed.
Many agencies will issue you a visa invitation and help you
register your visa even without being booked into a hotel.
Your original passport with at least 2 blank pages (passport
must be valid for at least 6 months after intended departure
date from Russia) is necessary to apply as well as other
Russian Business Visas
Russian business visas are far more flexible than tourist
visas, they are often the best choice for tourists who are
visiting friends and don't need a hotel, or who are looking
to spend an extended period of time in Russia, especially
those who want to travel independently or extensively. You
do not necessarily have to be on business in Russia to
receive one. In order to apply for a Russian business visa
you need an invitation from a Russian firm, which can
usually be arranged through a visa agency. You do not need
to plan hotel reservations or an itinerary to get a business
visa. order Russian business visa invitation.
Russian Student Visas
Student visas are an excellent deal; they are flexible,
lengthy, and entitle you to Russian prices for trains,
planes, the theater, etc. The only catch is that you have to
prove enrollment at a Russian institution. If you are
planning to enroll in a Russian university, the school
authorities can probably help you arrange the visa.
Other Russian Visas
Other types of visas include Transit Visas, On-the-Spot
Visas, and Diplomatic Visas. Transit visas can be a cheap
option for travelers headed for China or Central Asia, but
it's often hard to make it in and out of the country in your
allotted window of time. On-the-Spot Visas are generally not
available so it can be a relatively great risk depending on
them - they are also quite expensive.
