As a rule, every tourist from USA/UK/Australia/Europe/South Africa and quite a number of other countries arriving into Russian Federation by train, airplane or by car, must have a valid Russian Visa for the entire period of stay
This is not hard to get at all, especially after the new Visa laws have been approved by the Government in 2012.
For regular TOURIST visas, the process is the following:
Always, one of the documents required (apart from your passport, photo and the actual Russian Visa Application) is the so-called Visa Support. Ulkotours provides all the necessary Visa Support documents (Tour Confirmation and Tour Voucher) for you to obtain the Russian Visa.
If you don't want to bother with obtaining a Russian Visa yourself, we recommend that you contact your local agency approved by the consulate (see your consulate's website for details).
US Citizens are welcome to contact an official Full Visa Service provider in USA ILS - Russian Visa Center (Invisa Logistic Services)
There's NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE to obtain Visa Support documents if you are touring with Ulkotours.
If you're not an Ulkotours client, but would like to get Visa Support documents from us, a 20 USD fee will be charged per person.
