View Full Version : How to get a business visa when you don't work here?

I am planning on returning to Russia several times of the next 2 years and would prefer getting a 2 year business visa if possible. I don't work here yet having the biz visa would save me alot of hassle and money if I could get one. Do you know of companies that sell them and what is the best. I really think that the visa business is just bribing your way to get into the country. It does not cost the Russian government anywhere near the $100-200 that they charge to process a visa.
bye for now

you can get a one year business visa from www.gotorussia.com for $350. there are other services out there. This one is reliable and pretty easy to work with.

I thought Malcolm actually lived here; he displays such a knowledge of the city's nightlife!
Re the point of the thread, as far as I know there was some talk of issuing 2 year business visas (only to Americans as I understood) - was that ever put into force?
