A foreigner traveling to Russia should have a valid passport (expiry date should be no earlier than 6 months after the date of visitor’s departure from Russia) and an appropriate visa (for almost all foreign visitors).
Foreign participants should apply for visas at the Russian Consulate in their countries.
Invitation Letters for Visa can be provided by the Local Committee upon request.
Note, for some countries, the process of issuing the official letter of invitation involves Federal Migration Service and it can take about 6 weeks.
Please, apply for a visa as soon as possible after receiving the Invitation Letter to ensure that the visa is issued timely. The visa application rules are different for different types of visas and depend on country of residence of the applicant.
