Only to one thing. It is a detail, but it is important! When you complete the electronic visa application form you have to indicate “auto tourism” as the goal of your trip (and not “tourism”). This will insure an easy entry. When you have any doubts you can always call us.
A transit visa is valid up to 72 hours. You do not need an invitation for this, but you do need the visa (and the airplane tickets) for the country of your final destination. We are happy to help you with a transit visa to Russia. Please note that you do not need a transit visa when flying transit through Russia if you do not leave the airport. Exceptions are Belarus and Kazakhstan, for which a transit visa is absolutely necessary!
No. Airplane tickets and hotels can be booked independently from the visa. Obviously the flight dates have to fall within the period in which your visa is valid.

In order to obtain a visa for Russia you really need a so-called invitation letter. The official tourist invitation consists of two parts: the so-called “confirmation” and a “voucher”. Only a Russian tourist company can issue the invitation, if it is registered in the federal tourist association and possesses a special reference number. Please note that a hotel reservation is NOT sufficient. You can purchase the invitation letter from us for EUR 29.-.
Of course! Just include the invitation with the other documents. The trip to the embassy costs only EUR 36.- plus consular and VHS fees.
No. An example: your visa is valid from 15.11 – 25.11. You can arrive in Russia on the 17h and depart on the 23th without any problem whatsoever. It is important that you do not leave after the 25th!
If you are not an Austrian you need to include a current registration certificate with the other documents in order to request a visa for Russia.
The EU (including Austria) has reached an agreement with Russia for facilitated issuance of visas. The price differences originate from the Russian consulate. Our fee is the same for everybody.
Control all the information. Please contact us right away if your visa contains any sort of error. We will correct everything. ALM Consulting Services GmbH does not assume any liability if the entry is refused as a result of your negligence.
Only if you stay longer than 7 days in the country. You can register in several ways. Hotel guests can register at the reception; for independent travellers the easiest way to register is by going to the post office. In case of a registration by mail you have to submit a copy of your passport, a copy of the visa and migration card, and the address and phone number of the place where you stay. Important: respect the deadline of 7 days! Otherwise it becomes a complicated and expensive affair. On request (and for EUR 30.- extra) we can take care of the registration.
You do not need a visa if you are only taking part in excursions in guided groups. You do need a visa if you want to move around by yourself. One entry is enough, even when you leave the ship several times.
Beside the documents needed for a tourist visa, you also need an original invitation of the school or university. That sounds complicated, but don’t worry. Contact us and we take care of everything.
