Making an invitation for a visa to Russia
For a foreign citizen to receive a visa to the Russian Federation, he needs an invitation, which is a confirmation of the admission of a foreigner who wants to visit Russia, and a voucher provided by the hotel. All organizations, including hotels issuing invitations to foreign citizens, must be registered with the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Visa to Russia for a foreigner begins with a kind of “call”. Visa support for a tourist is based on the presence of several official papers:
- confirmation from the hotel about the reception of a guest on its territory;
- travel voucher with a personal number issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs RF
The necessary confirmation is received only after payment for the reservation. Thus, the document is drawn up for the full stay of a person in a particular place, indicating the dates of arrival and departure, a room for accommodation and other information about when and where to find a registered traveler.
Booking a room and paying for the room reservation required to receive an invitation is not sufficient for obtaining a visa. It is necessary to pay for visa support, the cost of which can be from 500 to 2500 rubles. Hotels arrange visa support on the basis of clearly regulated dates of residence in the city where the hotel is located. Thus, a foreign citizen planning a trip to Russia cannot visit several cities, since the Russian consulate provides only one invitation. Please note that when canceling a room reservation, the hotel has the right to both withhold payment and set a fine.
