Before arranging a trip to Russia, citizens of most of the countries need to apply for a Russian visa. If you are planning a visit to Russia and don’t know what to start with, Russian National Group gives you the most complete information on obtaining a visa to Russia. Visa lists entry/exit dates, your name, passport details, and your travel purpose. Please, note that your Russian visa is an exit permit just like it’s an entry permit: if you lose it or stay over your designated departure date, leaving the country could be more troublesome than entering it.
