    Visa for the purpose of TRP submission

    please... please... can anyone tell me what type of visa i need so that i can stay longer than 90 days? for the purpose of applying for TRP. i am a British, with a British passport.

    All visa agents can arrange invitation and visa for a maximum stay of 90 days, even with the Private invitation.
    i have been 3 times to Russia, each time 90 days max. the last trip i married to my beauty in the city of Krasnoyarsk, am back to France.
    i know that the visa must be for the true purpose of the visit, so two questions i need the answer to:

    1: what is the name? and where from? of the invitation that i need so that i can inform my wife to get for me?
    2: what is the name of this visa for the purpose to apply for TRP, somewhere i heard that there is a visa type that permits a stay of 5 months. no visa agent have heard of it, that means i can do it myself directly with the Russian consulate, all visa application handed to VFS, and they do not know of such visa exists.

    you can reply to this, or email me directly.

    where is the Dutchman in Moscow?, how to contact him? he may have come across this problem before his TRP.

    Many, Many thanks to all of you.

    Your wife needs to visit her local my document office
    https://md.mos.ru

    Ask there about how she invites you herself and also tell them about your plans for TRP.

    I also haven't heard of this 5 month visa, when applying for TRP get a 3 private visa in this time submit all docs and then leave and return, it takes 6 montbs or a bir mote to het the TRP, you might have to get 3 three months visa back to back.

    You can get a one year multi-entry business visa to Russia as a UK citizen.

    There are any number of Russian companies offering support to get this visa issued for a fee. You can find them on line. Ask the company who issues the visa support whether or not there is a limit on the number of days you can be in Russia, consecutively and per year. There might be one.

    At least with this visa, you can come and go without getting a new visa, while your TRP is being processed.

    Rules might have changed, but for UK citizens I believe it's still 3 months in , 3 out, " 90 day rule".

    The 90 day visa makes sense. 6 of one, half dozen of the other.

    In answer to oldtimer's other question, I don't think he needs to show he's applying for the TRP on the visa ap. Instead, he can keep it simple and say "personal", "tourism" or "business" depending on what type of visa he is applying for.

    I'm also not familiar with the 5 month visa. Then again, the TRP might not be ready in five months. It can take longer...better to plan for at least six months.

    Based on my recent experience (I applied in March this year), you may have to spend longer out of Russia than just 3 months. Also, be aware of the 90/180 day rule (if that applies to business visas, at least). You can only stay a maximum of 90 days in any rolling 180 day [period.
    My request was accepted mid-March and the approval was given mid-August (5 months later). However, it took another month for the notification to arrive at my house (in Russia).

    There is a specific visa for TRP applicants, but not all consulates seem to know about it. I think the idea is that you make the TRP application from your home country directly to the Russian Ministry. Presumably they make a preliminary review and then grant you a four month visa which is meant to cover the period that it will take to complete the process.

    I'm not sure if these are available in the UK. They weren't in Belgium or Luxembourg where I was living before moving to Russia.
    However, the Russian Consulate int he Hague, Netherlands, does give some information: https://netherlands.mid.ru/en_GB/web...in-russia?cn=1

    Hope this isn't too late!
    I asked about the TRP visa in Kiev last time I was there and they said that it's only for when you have the paper notification that your TRP is ready. Seems very impractical. You can technically apply for TRP in the consulates, but it's hard to imagine how you'd do the medical and the exam. Maybe they created that visa with that in mind though.

    Oldtimer, it'll should be a whole lot cheaper to do a private visa. Business visa invitations are a bit pricey aren't they?

    I am looking for a visa for my husband. We are in the USA. It looks like it does not matter what visa you applying (tourist, business or private) it's better to get 3 years multiple-entry visa. Cost is $270. 90/180 rule applies to all kind of visas. It is really strange that FMS does not give permition to stay in the country after they accepted documents for TRP. Does not make any sence.

    A Russian 3 year visa? , if so, then the 90/180 rule doesn't apply.

    Why not? They are regular visas. The same rules will apply. Russian embassy recommends to apply for 3 years visa. Other words - чтоб трижды не вставать - receive 1 visa for 3 years with multiple entries. Here is info about tourist visa

    No such thing as TRP visa though

    As far as I know, for American citizens, same goes for Russians who have a 3 year visa.Can stay 6 months pop out for a day and return.

    It would be perfect. I will do some research at home ( I am at work now). But last time I checked rule 90/180 was in use. Thanks

    I do not see 90/180 rule for visa foreigners in official documents but different tourist agencies posts explanations about that. They are all talking about staying 90 days in 180 days period. I wanted to find an e-mail address where I can ask this question but it seems to me that now migration department of UMVD does not release this information. Everything goes through site gosuslugi only.

    There may be different rules for Americans and Europeans, I think that Russia applies reciprocity logic and applies the same kind of restrictions to country A as country A applies to Russia.
    The 90/180 day rule certainly applied to me (European) and was confirmed to me by the Consulate in Luxembourg. Having said this, the longest visa I could apply for was only 90 days in any case.
    The important thing for me was that I had to take into account an earlier stay that fell within the 180 day period, which effectively limited the time I could stay on the new visa (i..e less than 90 days).

    The 3 years business visa is only for foreigners from the USA ( 90/180 day rule applies, specially if one is waiting for the RVP it would be a bad idea to disrespect this rule, they scan all your entries and exits), it must be a multi entry visa, logically, otherwise you could not comply to the 90/180 rule. I heard that it's a bilateral thing, meaning, Russians business men can also get a 3 years visa for the USA.
    Europeans can get a maximum of 1 year business visa for Russia, and here also the 90/180 rule is valid, but I heard that not everybody gets it, there are some conditions, including medical tests.
    For both cases you will need to make the registration when you arrive in Russia.
