Visa to Russia
For your stay in Russia you need a VISA.
Please do not forget to apply for to your local Russian Consulate in a proper time. The earlier
you apply for your visa (at least 10 days before the date of your journey) the less you will pay
for your visa.
To obtain your visa you will need:
• A valid passport (with minimum 6 months to expiry date)
• 3 passport photos
• Consulate Application Form
• Invitation received from LENEXPO or your travel agent in original or fax copy depending
on Consulate requirements
There are 2 ways to obtain your visa:
1. TOURIST VISA: you require an Invitation Letter and a Voucher/Booking Reference for
your hotel accommodation from Lenexpo Travel Company or your travel agent. For your
Invitation Letter please complete and return FORM 1 to us.
To obtain your Voucher/Booking Reference please make your hotel reservation by
choosing a hotel in the enclosed price list and sending us your request for accommodation
Your Hotel booking and the support for your Tourist Visa must be made through the same
travel company otherwise these documents will be illegal.
Having fulfilled these requirements you can obtain a single entry visa valid maximum for 28
days. Our Visa Support is free of charge but Consulate Fee will depend on the time you
allow the Russian Consulate to prepare your Visa. In the Consulate Application Form the
applicant should declare the purpose of visit as Tourism.
2. BUSINESS VISA: if you are planning to stay in Russia for more than 28 days or need a
Business Visa we will arrange an official invitation for you from the Russian Federation
Ministry of Internal Affairs which may take considerable time. In addition to personal data
FORM 1 you should send us a copy of the Personal Information Page of your passport at

plus the Consulate Fee. In case your local Russian Embassy/Consulate needs the original
