Hi guys,

I'm a US citizen in the US married to a Russian citizen in Russia. It looks like the only way for me to get a visa to Russia currently is with a private invitation from my wife, and the processing center website says something about the address on the letter must match the address of registration. Does anyone have experience with registering a private visa at a different address? We're unlikely to be living at the apartment where she is permanently registered (or even in that same city), so would it be an issue to get registered at a hotel I'd be staying at or by the landlord of an apartment?

I'd appreciate hearing anyone's stories about private visas!
