Group Visa to Russia - Invitation for Russian Tourist Group Visa

Russian group tourist visa can be offered to a group that consists of more than 7 people who are going to apply for Russian group tourist visa in one and the same Russian consulate and in the same time (all together) and who are going to travel on the same dates and have the same route (itinerary).

Visa Support (Russian Group Tourist Invitation)

Russian group tourist invitation (visa support document) is a visa support document needed to get your group tourist visa. We - an authorized travel agency - issue an invitation which comprise a tourist voucher, confirmation of hotel booking & group list with passport data of all members of your group. It means that officially you must have a booking confirmation of your accommodation and route for your group for the whole period of your stay in Russia.

The price for such an invitation depends on the following facts:

  • the number of travellers in a group
  • whether you are planning to stay at a hotel or privately
  • which cities (towns) you are going to visit
  • whether you need a single or double entrance visa.

But anyway it will be cheaper than getting individual invitations per each person of a group.
