Russian business visa

A business invitation to Russia may be issued by:

  • the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) or its regional representatives;
  • the Russian Federal Migration Service (FMS)or its local offices;
  • an authorized Russian company (this type of invitation can only be used by EU, US and Japan passport holders)

We suggest that you contact your local Russian consulate and make sure that an electronic copy of the invitation would be sufficient. The original is available upon request (you can order it to be delivered when make an online application). It will be sent via DHL to the address you will have indicated.

Please note that a multiple entry visa is only available for people who have been issued a Russian visa before. A copy of your previous visa should be enclosed to your new application. If this visa was processed before 2013, we strongly recommend that you should contact your local Russian consulate and make sure that a multiple entry visa would still be available.
