Russian Visa Invitation Online

When travelling to Russia, citizens of most countries must obtain a visa in advance.

Mostly demanded visa for travelers from UK, India and many other countries is a business visa. However, getting a Russian visa invitation online for business can be exhausting if you do not have adequate information.

Business visa is issued on the grounds of the Russian business invitation issued by an accredited local company in most cases through the Ministry of Internal Affairs (ex. FMS).

Though, you might meet other types of invitation in the requirements of the Russian Embassy.  In brief, there are invitations issued by:

  • the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – issues invitations for diplomatic and different Ministry’s levels;
  • Chamber of Commerce and Industry – works with branches of Foreign companies on the territory of Russia, which should be accredited at the Chamber. It invites foreign citizens on behalf of own name- Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
