Russian Business Visas and Invitations

Russian business visas are also relatively easy to get. Single- and double-entry visas can be valid for up to three months. They are a bit cheaper than multiple-entry visas, which can be good for any 90 days out of every 180-day period for six to twelve months.

Officially business visas are intended for foreign citizens who travel to Russia to meet their business partners, take part in negotiations, sign a contract, visit an exhibition, etc. These visas can be obtained for a longer term that tourist ones and the Consulate processing period is usually shorter. Russian officials do acknowledge that these visas are sometimes used for extended tourist stays, to visit family and friends in Russia, etc. This is generally ok so long as you list an "appropriate" "purpose for travel" on your forms (such as "business"), follow the "90-Day Rule," leave the country before the visa is invalid, get the visa registered appropriately, etc.

A business invitation is required to process a business visa. A business visa can be good for up to 12 months (but no more than 90 days out of any 180 day period) and allow for unlimited entries, which is not possible with a tourist visa. A multiple entry visa is only available for people who have been issued a Russian visa before. If this is your first visit, you are only eligible to obtain a single or double entry visa for 1 to 3 months.

Foreigners can usually receive business visas only in their home country. You also need to have been issued a Russian visa before in order to qualify for the longer, multiple entry visa. Citizens of the Schengen space can receive visas in any country of the Schengen space. To receive the visa in a third country, one generally needs either a residence permit or a work permit for that third country. Business visas do not imply official employment in Russia. For this purpose a work visa and work permit are needed.

Required Documents:

  1. Your original passport, which will be valid for at least 6 months after intended your departure date from Russia, and which has at least 2 blank, adjoining pages for the visa.
  2. Two completed and signed copies of the Russian visa application form.
  3. ONE passport-size photo, signed on the back.
  4. For stay exceeding 3 months, or for a multi-entry visa, an HIV test will likely be required (check at the specific consulate to make sure).
  5. Invitation (with the official seal and legal address of the inviting company, the signature and name of the official authorized to invite foreigners to Russia. The original invitation may be requested.
