Citizens of most countries have to obtain a visa to enter the Russian Federation. Participants are responsible for completing all legal formalities regarding their visa prior to entering the Russian Federation.


To obtain Russian entry visa a person needs to apply for visa in his/her home country. Given the nature of the meeting, a TOURIST visa is recommended for all participants who need a visa. Service Agency Monomax will provide all participants with a Visa Support Letter (voucher) and confirmation of the hotel reservation. These documents are required for formal visa application at a Russian Consulate or Embassy.

The visa application procedures and fees may vary across different countries. Please read the instructions carefully before submitting an application. In most countries two passport photos, proof of purchase of a personal travel/health insurance and the details of return air ticket may be required at the time of application.

We advise you to contact the Consulate to enquire if they need anything else.

If the originals are required, Service Agency Monomax will send you the visa support documents by express mail (a fee will be charged for this service).
