Russia Visas: Requirements, Processing; Fast Secure Online Russian Visa Expidite Services

Russia Visa Overview (US Citizens)

For US citizens a visa is required. A U.S. citizen who does not comply with Russian immigration laws can be subject to arrest, fines, and/or deportation. Russian authorities will not allow U.S. citizens to depart the country if their visa has expired. Travelers must wait until a new visa is approved, which may take up to 20 days. Please verify the expiration date of your Russian visa, and leave Russia before your visa expires!

To obtain your Russia Visa you will gather a list of required document and applications and deliver them to one of our offices (we offer both FedEx overnight or local office delivery options). We then work with the Russia Embassy or consulate office to have your visa issued.

What is a Russia Visa?

For those who have traveled to Mexico or Europe, American passports are typically stamped by the immigration agent upon entry and authorized to stay for a period of time (typically between 30 and 90 days). For some destinations a "pre-authorization" is required. The confirmation of this pre-authorization is provided as a visa which outlines the specific approval including dates of entry, duration of stay and purpose of travel. Although pre-authorized to visit, a visa is not a guaranteed entry permit and an immigration official may, at their discretion deny entry - although this is an extremely rare occurrence.

When to Apply for Russia Visas?

It is recommend that you apply for your Russia visa 3 to 4 weeks before your travel date. Although the visa itself may only take a few days to process it is always best to add as much of a buffer as possible incase any issues arise during the process. If this is last minute travel - don’t worry - you’re in good hands, but give us a call to discuss your situation in detail.

What is "Visa Validity"?

Validity refers to when the visa expires. For example, a three month visa means you have three months from the date the visa is issued to enter and depart Russia (although the actual period of stay in Russiamay be limited to 30 days or less. The exact validity of your visa will be written on your actual visa.

What is an "Entry" (Single / Double / Multiple)?

Single entry visas allow you to enter Russia one time within the validity of the visa. Double entry visas allow you to enter Russia two times within the validity of the visa. Multiple entry visas allow you to enter Russia an unlimited amount of times within the validity of the visa.

What Is a "Visa Jurisdiction"?

Some foreign Embassies or consulates will only accept visa applications from residence within a specific area, normally determined by state.
