The Russian Invitation Letter is a requirement for you to obtain the Russian Business Visa. The document is in A4 format and indicates that you are invited to Russia by an accredited Russian travel company or a hotel. iVisa provides Russian tourist and business invitation letters depending on the purpose of your trip and whether you are applying for a Russian Tourist or Business (Commercial) Visa.

Applying for the Russian Business Invitation Letter is easy and fast with iVisa. The process is 100% online. Travelers simply provide personal and travel information and the Russian Tourist Invitation Letter can be generated in 1 business day (with super rush processing). You can print the Business Invitation Letter and use it as one of the documents required for your Russian visa.

Business Invitation Letter Requirements for Russia

  • You are applying for a Russian Business Invitation Letter and not a Russian Business (Commercial) Visa. The Russian Invitation Letter is a requirement for you to obtain the Russian Business Visa.
  • Please note that the Business Invitation Letter is a scan of the original. This is typically acceptable at most Russian Embassies, but there are cases where the Embassy may require the original. We suggest all applicants inquire to see if the original is required at their specific consulate, as we are unable to send originals at this time.
  • After you receive your Invitation Letter via email, you can apply for the Russian Business Visa at one of their embassies.
  • You don't need to book a hotel or flight prior to your application for the Russian Visa Business Invitation Letter. You will, however, need to provide basic company information, as this is regarding a Business Visa.
  • The Russian Business Invitation you will receive from iVisa consists of a Business Confirmation Letter (“подтверждение о приеме иностранного туриста” - in Russian).
  • Business Invitation Letters are only available to EU citizens, US citizens and a few others. For UK citizens, we can give an FMS electronic invitation, as the Business Invitation Letter is not accepted at UK Russian Consulates.
  • The Russian Business Invitation Letter will be in Russian.
