Some Tips To Remember When Completing Your Online Russian Visa Application
The very first question: "Country (select the country where you will be applying for your visa)" will determine the choices presented on the last page as to where the visa will be issued. When applying in the United States, that would be correct choice from the drop down menu and the next question "Hints and Help Language" , the choice from that drop down menu should be English.
You must create a unique case sensitive password that we will need to review your application. Please take note of the Application ID Number. This is very important!
If applying for the 3 year multiple entry Tourist Visa, or Business Visa, you must have a minimum of 42 months of remaining validity on your passport. Short of that, this type of Russian Visa will be truncated to expire 6 months prior to the the expiration date of your passport. If you have the minimum of 42 months validity, your exit date should read as 3 years minus one day from the entrance date on the application (ie: 30June2020 to 29Jun2023). Conversely, if your passport is due to expire on January 30th 2022 , and your planned entry date is 30Jun2020, your exit date should be entered as 30th July 2021.
If Saint Petersburg should be a Russian city of destination for you, please do not abbreviate Saint as "St". Type "Saint Petersburg".

We will then finalize (register) your application and email you the pdf version for print out ON SEPARATE SHEETS and signature. You may now the ship the signed application with your wet signature, your passport and one standard recently taken passport type photo (2" x 2") and all required supporting documentation.
