Ok, I don't know if it's just the visa agency I'm using or what, but things seem to get more complicated and more complicated. So first off, I'm going over to Russia to start the TRP, they tell me I cannot go on a business visa, I need a private homes stay. Then they tell me that after 6 months there's a waiting period of 6 months. Originally I was planning on going on a 6 month single entry business visa, come back to the US and then apply immediately for another 6 month visa or try the Riga renewing visa thing I heard on these forums. Guess my question is, what should I do? I'm trying to stay there as long as possible with the least amount of time waiting in between. Please help! lolol
