Tourist Visa (valid up to 30 days)

Travel visa is required for travel to Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and other countries of the former Soviet Union (except Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, and Ukraine). It can be obtained from the nearest consulate with official visa support documents. Tourist visa for a limited period of leisure travel, business activities are also allowed. The difference from the business visa is the lower price and the processing time.

Consulates reserve right to decline visa for any reason. We suggest searching to the best possible airfare, and then applying for your visa when you know your travel itinerary. You can book your accommodations such as a hotel room or an apartment (very popular and less expensive alternative to hotels in Europe), while your visa is being processed.

Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus and most other former Soviet countries require you to get an official visa support or "invitation" before you can apply for the visa to the Consulate. This "invitation" is usually an official document from a travel agency, registered with the local Ministry of Foreign Affairs, describing services booked for the client.

Business Visa (valid 30 days to 1 year)

Business visa is far more flexible than tourist visa, it is often the best choice for tourists who are visiting friends and don't need a hotel, or who are looking to spend an extended period of time in Russia, especially those who want to travel independently or extensively. You can book your accommodations such as a hotel room or an apartment (very popular and less expensive alternative to hotels in Europe), while your visa is being processed.

For more visa information, you can check it via above the link, but it's better to make a consultation from the local Russian Embassy.

Note

ICCMA will only offer the invitation letter as a participation proof, which is not used for visa application. For the visa application, it's better for you to apply for the tourist visa. If you need the materials for visa application, we can offer the help, but not responsible for your visa application. Thanks for your understanding and attention!
