Russia is a beautiful country. The famous Red Square and St. Basil’s Cathedral are the most visited landmarks, but there are plenty of other attractions you can enjoy. However, do not forget that Russia is one of the countries that require a visa upon entry. Getting one is not difficult. All you need to do is go to the Russian embassy in your country and apply for one. There is one little detail, though, that you need to take care of. One of the requirements for obtaining a Russia tourist visa is an invitation letter. iVisa cannot provide you a Russia visa, but it can get that invitation letter for you. All you need to do is apply, and the document will be in your email inbox in the timeframe you choose.

How can you apply?

The application process is very simple. The first thing you need to do is gather a few things. You need a valid passport, a correct email address, proof of accommodation, proof of finances (not always applicable). You must also know the departure and arrival date, as well as the number of entries you need for your visa. After that, you can move on and fill in the form. The form consists of two steps. First, you need to put in your basic information. You also need to select the tourist visa you want. There are two types: the single entry visa and double entry visa. The only difference between the two is 10$. You are also required to choose the processing time at this point. There are three available options. The Standard means your application is processed in one business day, the Rush processing will release your invitation letter in six hours, and the Super Rush processing time means that your document will be ready within two hours. As for the cost, you will be charged 25$, 50$, and 75$ respectively.

The second step of the application will require you to revise the first step and make the payment. You can use a credit or a debit card, and if you have a PayPal account, iVisa accepts that as well. After the payment is processed, you can submit your application and wait for the invitation letter to arrive via email in the timeframe you selected. Do not forget to print it in color and take it with you at the Russian embassy.

After your invitation letter has been released, you need to go to the Russian embassy for your interview. Before doing so, you should find out which documents you need. It is best if you give them a call before you go. After the interview, the embassy will release your Russia visa if approved.

While iVisa cannot help you get the visa itself, it can help you get the invitation letter in as little as two hours. You may still have to go through the embassy process, but at least you can get the invitation letter out of the way. iVisa provides an excellent service along with a 24/7 support service that is ready to take your call and help you with any information you may need.
