Important: Please note that if in your online application form you answered ‘NO’ for questions about previous employment and educational institutions, you need to enclose signed covering letter confirming the same with your application.Please note: All visa supporting documents must be in English or Russian language only.Provided that travel documents, used to enter Russia, are presented, a gratis duplicate card is issued.
Please, take care of your migration card to avoid unpleasant situations.
Processing time for postal applications takes longer due to the period they are in transit to and from Russia Visa Application Centre.
Kindly add this period to the minimum 7 calendar days required to process the visa application once complete documents have been received. Due to this we do not recommend that you apply for an urgent service by post.
The assessment of visa applications is carried out by the Russian Consulate, and the grant or refusal of Russian visas is at their sole discretion. These are based on information and experience of the Russian Consulates in Edinburgh and London.
The processing of your application is subject to the procedures and timescales of the Russian Consulates, over which we have no control.
