Nationals of most of the countries need a visa to enter Russia. If you are not sure if you need a visa – you could check it here or send us an email.

We are sending a standard visa invitation letter after receiving pre-payment for the course. Usually, we need up to 25 days to get visa invitation for non-EU citizens in the Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia.

For EU-citizens this process may be faster. Please note the visa invitation letter is not a visa – you have to go to the Russian Consulate and apply for a visa.

Together with the visa invitation, you have to collect other documents (usually a passport, passport size photo, filled application form etc.). Please check the website of the local Russian Consulate to see the full list of required documents. Here you find your local Consulate.

Plan your trip carefully! We strongly recommend applying for the course as early as possible (in 1,5-2 or more months before the course starts) to have time for the visa application process.

Step 1

Contact the local Russian Consulate as soon as possible to make an appointment for a visa. In some cases, you can only make an appointment 1-2 months in advance.

Step 2

Collect all the required documents together with a visa invitation letter from us (we need up to 25 days to send it), fill in a visa application form and submit it on the date of appointment.

Usually, it takes about 1-2 weeks to receive a visa after the moment you submit your visa application. Visa fee varies depending on the country where you apply.

If you have any questions, we would be happy to assist at any stage of your application!
