Free Russian Visa Support

Last modified on 21 Sep 2017

If you’re visiting Russia for travel purposes and a EU or North American passport holder, or a resident of a country that is outside of the list of countries of visa-free entries to Russia, you will need to apply for a Tourist Visa.

If you intend to do so via your local Russian embassy or consulate, a formal visa invitation is required to support your application. Such an invitation can be provided by an authorized organisation with valid Reference Number (our reference number is 017660).


Kremlin Tour is fully authorized to provide Visa support and glad to offer it free of charge for our guests!

With our Visa Invitation you can apply for a Russian Tourist Visa for a maximum period of stay of 30 days.
