Russian Tourist Invitation Request Online Form

* Fields are required

All tourists to Russia need a Tourist Visa Support letter.   This is sometimes provided by your tour operator.  Otherwise, CIBTvisas can obtain the Tourist Visa Support letter on your behalf and will submit the letter with your visa application.  There is a fee for CIBTvisas to obtain the letter from an authorized agent in Russia which is separate from the visa fees.

Your Russian Tourist Invitation will be sent directly from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Ministry of the Interior directly to the embassy/consulate issuing your visa. You will not receive a copy of this document.
