All foreign citizens, with an exception of those from CIS-countries, presently need a visa to visit the Russian Federation. To get a visum, you must have an invitation from Russia. Then you fill in an application form and submit it together with a photo, passport and invitation to the Russian Embassy/Consulate.
How to get an invitation?
- you can ask your Russian business partner to assist you with an invitation,
- you can join a tourist group and travel on a tourist group visa.
- you can contact an accommodation facility in Russia (hotel) and ask them to forward an invitation
- you can ask for individual visa support at a travel agency.
The following documents should be submitted in order to obtain a visa regardless of its category:
1.1. Fully completed visa application form (this is a link to the website of the Embassy of Russia. This form shall be used only for applicants serviced in Oslo). An application form should be signed and dated by the Applicant personally. Please note that you are to answer ALL the questions in the visa application form in Russian, Norwegian or English in block letters. Incomplete application forms would not been accepted. Any corrections in the application forms would not been accepted. You can be asked to submit all necessary documents to substantiate information given in the application form.
1.2. Valid national passport (original only and it should have at least two blank pages). It must be valid not less than six months after the expiry date of the visa.
IMPORTANT! Any damage of any page of the Applicant’s passport (especially of the page with a photograph) will result in the rejection of a visa application.
1.3. One recent passport-sized photograph (35 x 45mm) of an Applicant, stapled to the upper right corner of an application form. The photograph must be:
a) of true likeness and not more than 6 months old; showing full face;
b) taken without headgear, head coverings and hats;
