Tourist invitaion obtain visa to Russia

Why do you need an invitation to come to Russia?

To enter (and exit) Russia, foreigners need a visa, which can be obtained from the Russian consulate. To obtain a visa, you need an invitation.

What type of visa do you need?

If you don't plan to stay more than 30 days in Russia, you need a tourist invitation letter (voucher). For longer stays, or if you need a Russian multiple entries visa, you will need a "business" invitation (for a "business visa") that you can get for 3, 6 or 12 months.
