View Full Version : Visa's Telex and BIG Problem For Me

02-07-2007, 11:59
I need to leave the country to renew my visa on Tuesday the 10th. I only take a 3 month single entry business visa, so it shouldn't be hard to get a fast visa, but the company I usually go through no longer offer a 5 business days invitation.

I'm shocked and angry, because this is a service they still advertise and I was checking for the last month to make sure I'd be fine.

I have found one company that offers a visa in 3 days, but telexed. I'm not sure whether the Russian embassy in Helsinki still accept this. But if they do, I suppose I could go down that route.

Can anybody tell me A) whether they know of a company that can get me the official invitation by Tuesday afternoon (10th) or b) whether the consulate in Helsinki, or generally, accept telexed inviations. I can't get through to these guy by phone and the email they have on their website doesn't work.

I'm panicing... HELP!

No, telex went great. It was my third trip to Helsinki on a visa run, and I have to say that although the prices have increased a great deal, the service is still second to none. As on previous occassions, I was first in the queue and had my visa by 10.30. Still a great experience and highly recommended as a visa run destination.
