Upon the arrival of a foreigner in Russia with a private or business invitation, if he/she does not live in a hotel, you may need to register his/her place of residence. This is required only when a foreigner plans to stay in the country for more than 7 working days, otherwise the registration is not required. The registration can be performed in a post office by filling out the form and waiting once more in a queue.

Tourist invitation for a foreigner in Russia. Prices. Documents.

Registration of tourist invitations for foreigners is carried out in accordance with the Russian Federation legislation. First of all, it is the Federal Law "On the procedure of exit from and entry into the Russian Federation" and the Federal Law № 115-FZ "On the legal status of foreign citizens in the Russian Federation" dated 25 July 2002.

A tourist invitation to Russia is provided in the case of entry into the Russian Federation for the purpose of tourism. Based on this invitation, a visa is issued for up to 1 month (thirty days) and can provide the opportunity to visit Russia 1 or 2 times (single or double entry). A double entry visa for the tourist invitation can be obtained if a tourist itinerary involves travel to a third country and return back to Russia.

For example:

A foreign tourist from Latvia wants to come to St. Petersburg, then to visit Finland by ferry and come back to St. Petersburg. In this case it is possible to obtain a tourist invitation for a foreigner for double entry visa. In the case if the tourist goes to the country of origin and not to the third country, it is necessary to receive a new travel invitation to get a new visa.
