Important tips

  • Prices depend on the time needed to receive your visa – this can range between 1- 15 days.
  • If you plan on staying in Russia for more than 7 days you will need to get registration (usually through your hotel).
  • On the airplane to Russia you will receive a small white migration card.  Be sure to fill this out and keep it with you.  You will need it when you leave Russia.
