View Full Version : Canadain seeks Russian visa-help please

30-07-2003, 15:55
Does anyone know if I have to submit an HIV test to the Russian embassy in Helsinki? What about proof of medical insurance?
Please write any advice you can about my problem, because I just plain don't know!

Thanks so much for your help!

Unlike Estonia, Candaians don't need a visa for Latvia. Their president was a professor at Concordia University and so she has a soft spot for us. Personally, I'd choose Helsinki or Talinn as I found Latvia too much like Russia to be considered a vacation- even for a visa run.
In terms of documents, you should check with the consulate you are going to. Some countries require an AIDS test, others don't.

Try Rome, great place, no problems with the visa for a Canadian or an Australian. Bonus is they take credit card payments and turned it all around in one day.
(Aids test is required)
