Russian Visas

Please be aware that all individuals applying for a Russia visa in the United Kingdom must provide biometric data, as part of the visa application process. To facilitate this, applicants will be required to appear in person at the Russia Visa Application Centre. The only exceptions to this new rule are applicants under the age of 12 years and those travelling for official government business or holding a diplomatic passport.

Direct Visas will offer a comprehensive range of services to ensure documents are correctly checked and verified prior to the applicant travelling to the Application Centre where they will be assisted by a member of our staff.

Should you require any assistance at any stage of the preparation of the visa application, please call 020 7397 3342 or email info@direct-visas.co.uk
