Russian Visas

All applicants will need to appear in person at the Russia Visa Application Centre to submit fingerprints as required by the Russian Government.  However, the exceptions to this rule are those that are under the age of 12 years old, anyone travelling for official government business or those who hold a diplomatic passport who can send apply by only sending us the documents for their Russia Visa.

Here at Direct Visas, we offer a comprehensive service to ensure that all documents are correctly checked and verified prior to the applicant travelling to the Application Centre; where one of our representatives will meet you with the checked paperwork to submit for approval to the center. Upon approval of the visa we will then collect it and return the passport to you with the visa inside.
