Tourist visa to Russia


In many countries in the Russian Consulates, foreigners may get the tourist invitation in a scanned form and then sumbit it for obtaining visas. 

Indian travellers and nationals of the 52 countries may get e-visa online to russian city Saint-Petersburg and Leningrad region only. You can't travel directly to Moscow by e-visa from India, for example, because due to immigartion rules you have to reach Saint-Petersburg region first. 

In the migration dangerous countries, Russian Consulates require the original invitations (hard copies) as usually. You can visit official web-site where you can check lists of states whose citizens can recieve online e-visa:

Electronic visa (e-visa) to Russian Federation has a very serious disadvantage and inconvenience: the problem that tourist can't leave the St.Petersburg region. It means that you can't visite Moscow or other beautiful places in Russia. You will be isolated in Saint Petersburg area and enterying-leaving the Russia are possible only through checkpoints at the national border in Saint Petersburg. Also flight to Saint-Petersburg much more costly then directly to Moscow air hub. If you are indian citizen think twice choosing e-visa to Saint-Petersburg. Maybe better to get full value tourist visa without limit and restrictions.
Applying processing time at russian Consulate up to 20 days or you have to pay double visa fee for urgency upon 3-4 days.

Hope its clear now. 

Glad to help You!

Alternative option for staying more then 30 days by tourist visa will be business invitation for 3 months or 1 year.
