Russian Visa Centre

A visa to the Russian Federation is a document, permitting stay in Russia for a specific period of time. Visa lists entry/exit dates, your name, passport details, and a purpose of travel. Please note, that your Russian visa is an exit permit just like it’s an entry permit: if you lose it or stay over your designated departure date, leaving the country could be more troublesome than entering it.

Important! For individuals from 12 years of age it is mandatory to apply for Russian visa in person to submit biometric data (digital fingerprints). Please, check the timetable for biometric data submission on this page.

The Russian Embassy in the UK has stopped issuing visas to people who have travelled to South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Madagascar, Eswatini, Tanzania or Hong Kong within 10 days of submitting their visa application.
