- Complete the visa application form. You will need to send this along with your visa invitation to the Russian embassy when applying for your visa. You can download the relevant application forms on our site.
- Send your application to your nearest Russian embassy or consulate. You can do this in person, or by mail. You will also need to include a passport photo in your application. Check with the Russian embassy itself to see whether they have any other specific requirements.
