Order Russian Visa Invitation

Russian Visa Online is a non-Government based service.
Russian Visa Online and our sister company CR Tour is a non-governmental organization that is officially registered as a Russian tour operator and is officially authorized to issue Russian visa invitations (sometimes called a Russian visa voucher or Russian visa support), the document necessary for foreign travelers to apply for a Russian visa at their local Russian Consulate. It is impossible to apply for a Russian tourist visa without this document. Our fees are listed below and are based upon a service fee for the issuance of this visa invitation.

Russian visas can be applied for directly with the Russian Consulate using the official site of the Russian Foreign Ministry. Russian Visa Online also acts as an expeditor and agent between our customers and the Russian Consulates in the US, UK and Canada, delivering visa applications to the Russian Consulate on behalf of our clients - please see our full visa support service for more information. This can save our customers time and money by alleviating the necessity for our customers to travel to the Russian Consulate themselves and to wait in long lines to apply.
