Visa and transportation

Visa (important!)

Please be aware that foreign citizens are obliged to have russian visa upon entering the Russian Federation. Without visa you shall not pass the passport control at the airport. Please carefully read all instructions and clearly fill necessary documents.

There are two basic ways to get visa:

  1. (preferred) Apply to local visa agency for a tourist visa and provide necessary documents. The agency will take its charges in addition to the Consulate fee.

  2. Fill the supplied form and send it to Natalia Dokalenko (doknatasha@jinr.ru) along with the scan of your first passport page. All fields in the form are mandatory. In case you are applying for the visa not in your native country,  a copy of a residence permit should also be sent.
    Upon receiving a reference number apply to your nearest Russian Consulate and follow the normal procedure for humanitarian visa. This type of visa is normally free, but takes longer time to prepare.
