Russian Visa Guide
Russian Visas

Although there are some exceptions (see our visa-free travel page), the vast majority of non-Russian nationals wishing to enter the Russian Federation must bear a valid Russian visa. If you book a tour through a travel agency back home, then you shouldn't have to worry at all about visas and registration as reputable agencies should make all the necessary arrangements on your behalf. It is, of course, always worth checking.

If, however, you're traveling independently, then you have a number of more or less complicated and expensive options to choose from in order to get a valid visa for your trip. Browse through the links below to find out about the type of Russian visa you need for your trip, how to apply for your Russian visa, where to apply for your Russian visa, other paperwork required when visiting Russia, and what to do if anything goes wrong with your travel documents during your stay.
