! Notice: The invitation cost does not include the Consular fee that is paid directly at the Embassy/Consulate in your country for reviewing an application.

! Notice: A letter of invitation isn’t an entry Russian Visa. You should apply for a Visa at the Russian Consulate in your country. You can find all the telephone numbers of the Russian Consulates in different countries at the web-site:

We can also provide you with an urgent business invitation. The invitation is sent directly to the Consulate via telex. The process takes 4-5 business days and then we inform you when telex will be sent. The cost of an urgent business invitation for European, American, Australian and New Zealand’s citizens is 100 Euros per person.

For getting a multiple entry Visa it’s necessary to submit the original letter of invitation to the Russian Embassy/Consulate in your country.

! Notice: The delivery is accomplished via DHL and the cost of this service isn’t included in the invitation cost.

In most countries for getting single entry Visas the original invitation isn’t obligatory and a scanned copy is enough. The delivery will be made upon the prior request only.

! Notice: In some Consulates the original invitation letter is OBLIGATORY! We kindly ask you to find out at the Russian Embassy/Consulate in the city where you are going to get a Visa if you need the original.
