View Full Version : Obtaining Visa in Berlin

06-07-2005, 14:33
I'm an American student trying to get a new Russian visa. I was hoping to go to Berlin and submit my invitation to the Russian embassy there, but recently heard from a few different sources that foreigners can not get visas in Germany, only Germans. I then heard that is was possible to get visas in Berlin. Has anyone ever tried to get a new Russian visa in Berlin? Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated!

According to their website

http://www.russische-botschaft.de/Konsulat/visa.htm (in German)

if you are not German, you will need a German residence permit in order to get a Russian visa in Germany.

Try calling them. They were very helpful last time I called.
