Russian Visa and Invitation to Russia

The tourist invitation to Russia (letter of invitation) is a visa support document, needed to get your Russian tourist visa (see the photo). Russian tourist visas are issued to foreign visitors for the maximum period of 30 days. Tourist visa can be with single or double entrance. Double entry visa gives you a possibility to re-enter the country during the period of the visa validity.  

Tour-tickets for Cruiser Ship Tourists

For tourists from cruiser ships we offer special tour-tickets that can serve instead of Russian visa if the tourists are going to spend in a Russian city (St. Petersburg) not more than 72 hours. These tourtickets can be valid only if cruise ship tourists are accompanied by our guide authorized in the port. The advantage of tour-ticket is that you don't need to apply for Russain visa at the consulate and spend less money for visa support and so on.

The price of such tour-tickets varies from 15-20EUR per person - depending on number of passengers (cruise ship tourists). To get more information, please, contact us!

NB! But this kind of visa support document is possible ONLY for cruise ship tourists!
