The Russian Invitation Letter is a requirement for you to obtain the Russian Tourist or 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. There are 2 different tourist invitation letters – the only difference is whether you need a single or double entry into Russia.
