Russia, Mongolia & China visa information for
The Russian government introduced biometric applications in the UK on 10 December 2014. That means that you will need to apply for your Russian visa in person at the visa application centre in London or Edinburgh and submit your biometric data at the time of application (fingerprints and facial image), along with the visa fee and your letter of invitation.
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 and paperwork to provide. If you’re a resident of the UK, we offer a handy visa service to save you this hassle. Although you will have to submit your application in person, our visa department can fill out the visa application forms for you to check and make sure that you provide the correct paperwork. We will also collect your passport once the visa is issued and post it back to you.
Standard visas take on average 9 to 10 working days, and you must leave a minimum of 3 weeks before your trip to ensure you get your visa on time. 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.
If you need your visa faster than that please advise us straight away. You’ll need to pay express visa fees if this is the case.
For all Russia Visas you will need to provide an Invitation Letter which can only be obtained through On The Go as you are travelling with us.
