Almost all foreign nationals should obtain an entry visa to the Russian Federation. This can be quickly checked at Timatic web-site.
In order to obtain Russian Visa one should apply to the local Russan Consulate in residence country with a support letter from the Organizing Committee. We provide supporting documents for Humanitarian visas, not touristic or business. The Organizing Committee is able to issue a support letter after the registration fee is paid in full.
Because of the time required for support letter preparation and the following proceedings we set the following deadlines for visa support requests:
|EU (except UK and Ireland), USA, China, India (simplified procedure)||May 1, 2017|
|All other countries (general procedure)||April 1, 2017|
Step-by-step visa guide:
The document requirements in the local Russian Consulate are determined by the citizenship, not the country of permanent residence. If you plan to apply in a country different from the citizenship, please note that additional document (e.g. residence permit) may be required.
