Consulate Rules

  • Visa processing starts only after you have submitted all necessary documents. Once submitted, no alterations can be made either to the visa-processing period or to the dates of staying in Russia.
  • If you want to make changes in submitted papers before visa is processed, all documentation will be returned to you for resubmission.
  • The fee paid for visa processing is not refundable. In case of re-submission due to any reason (except for computer misprint and/or a mistake of the consulate staff) you will have to re-apply for a new visa.
  • It is not possible to expedite visa processing after the consulate has accepted your documents.
  • The consulate may request additional information.
  • The consulate reserves the right to invite applicants for an interview and ask questions on personal, financial, business or corporate issues as well as on their Russian contacts and/or partners.
  • Visa fees are paid for the consideration of your application. They do not guarantee issue of visa and they are not refundable.
  • After you pick up your visa, check the dates before you leave the consulate! If there are mistakes, do bring it to the attention of the consulate immediately. If the mistake is on their behalf, they should put it right ASAP.
  • Make sure you know the working hours of the visa department of the consulate before you are going to apply for a visa. Russian consulates are closed during Russian holidays (and sometimes also the day after), and normally they also do not work on holidays of the host country.

    NB! Embassy rules and requirements might vary in different countries. Please ask your local consulate about the latest changes in the visa legislation. The above are the basic rules only.
