Russian Invitations

For travel to Russia, all travellers must have a visa and an official Letter of Invitation approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, its regional representatives, or by an appropriate Russian Federation Migration Service Branch.  Russian entry requirements state that a Letter of Invitation must be submitted in order to obtain a Russian visa.

If you are planning to travel to Russia, VisaConnection can provide you with a Russian Invitation Letter for your trip.  VisaConnection ensures fast, easy, and secure processing of your Russian Invitation Letter and visa.
