Russian Tourist Visa Requirements


A Tourist visa is issued for the travelers who come to Russia for tourism purposes. Tourist Visas are the most straightforward and inflexible, but it’s relatively easy to obtain. A tourist Russian visa is single-entry or double-entry only and can be valid for the period up to 30 days. It usually takes the Russian consulate from 1 to 10 days to issue this type of visa. A tourist visa is best when you know exactly where and how long you will be staying without diverting from your planned itinerary.

To obtain the Russian tourist visa, you require a Tourist Invitation (visa support letter). This document can be issued by our company, which is registered in the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), has reference number and is authorized to issue tourist visa support invitations. Every Consulate in the world accepts our invitations.

The Tourist Invitation comprises two parts (on the same paper): tourist reservation confirmation and tourist voucher. It must contain the confirmation of payment for a hotel/hostel reservation and other services, as well as the information about the personal data, trip details, inviting organization, and be signed by an authorized person and stamped.

Usually, a scanned copy of the invitation is accepted by the consulate, but sometimes they require originals (can be sent by post). The Russian Consulates in each country have their own rules, so to be safe, ask at your local Russian Embassy or Consulate about the latest changes in the Visa Law.

It takes us from 1 hour to 1 day to issue the Tourist Invitation letter which then can be sent to you by fax, e-mail, or post.


You can apply for a Tourist Invitation online through our website, or send the following information to us:
