1. Choose your language
If you have chosen a Russian language, write all the answers in Russian except for names, surnames, addresses and names of organizations (for these boxes use English).
If you are filing out your application in English, use English for all the answers. Use Latin alphabet only.
If the surname/name contains specific national letters missing in the Latin alphabet (for example, Ñ, É, Ü or Ç) write it just the same way as in your foreign passport. For example, you should write Seo Tuerre instead of Séo Türre.

2. Choose your country.
Choose the name of the country from the drop menu titled "Country", where the diplomatic representative authority, Consular department of the Russian Federation or the Russian visa application centre is situated, where you intend to apply for the visa.

3. Read the rules of filling the application - Time Out!
If during the completion process of the form you make a pause of more than 20 minutes, your session will time out and expire.
Unless you save your application number or its draft, you will have to start the completion process from the beginning.

4. Number of your application and password.
Your application has been created with form ID
Write it somewhere for the case you need to restore it.
Make up the password you can remember.

By having the number and the password, you will be able to open your non-ready application and add the missing information.

In the case you forgot the number or the password, you wouldn't be able to restore them so you would have to start filling the application from the beginning.

      When your host company submits an application for your invitation (electronic and telex types) - information about the exact location is not required. So there is no need to indicate this in your visa application.

      However, if you have a hotel reserved, you can indicate it in the application form. In case you do not remember the hotel phone, just write any numbers, for example: 111

      Those patients who are going on business visa from the host company & going directly to the Hospital, can indicate as the place of stay "Vega Izmailovo" Hotel - we always have reserved rooms in a few hotel just in case.
