Tourist visa requirements for travelling on the Trans-siberian Railway

Visa Procurement

Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours, therefore it is essential that you check current visa requirements with the embassy before travel. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your planned date of departure from Russia, Mongolia or China.

All visitors on the Trans-siberian Railway will require a visa.

Please provide us with your passport details as soon as possible after booking as we need them for train and other bookings.

Russia, Mongolia & China visa information for

UK Residents


Russia

Travel visas are an essential part of your holiday and you can’t get on with your adventure until you have them but they can be complicated things to sort out. There are application forms to complete, paperwork to provide and embassy queues to stand in. If you’re a resident of the UK, we offer a handy visa service to save you this hassle. Our visa department will fill out the visa application forms for you to check, make sure that you provide the correct paperwork and stand in the queues for you.

Processing time can be anything from 10 working days from the time we lodge the visa. The Russian Embassy experiences unprecedented demand, so the sooner you get your application to us, the better. Visa applications are only accepted 3 months or less prior to the date of your exit from Russia.

Booking late, need your visa sooner or forgotten to do your visa application on time (less than 3 weeks prior to departure)? You will need to take the EXPRESS SERVICE.

In order to obtain a Russian visa you require a Russian 'invitation letter'. On The Go Tours can obtain the 'invitation letter' from the Russian authorities that is required for all Russia tourist application forms.
