HOW IT WORKS:

All Russian visa applications in the UK must be submitted in one of the official Russian visa centres: Edinburgh, Manchester or London. This has to be done in person by every applicant, as in addition to visa application documents which we will guide you through, all applicants over the age of 12 are required to provide their fingerprints. It usually takes between 1 and 5 working days for the Russian Embassy to issue your visa. The step-by-step instructions below will help you to obtain your Russian visa in the easiest possible way. We have been processing Russian visas for nearly 20 years, so you can rely on our practical knowledge. Generally, the success rate of obtaining the Russian visas using our services is nearly 100% and your application should run smoothly (unless you have been blacklisted by the Russian government or you are a spy!).
