Current local news affecting today's business traveler
For travel to Russia, all travellers must have a visa. Russian entry requirements state that for business and official trips a Letter of Invitation must be submitted in order to obtain a Russian visa.
Letters of Invitation must usually be approved by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Approval needs to be applied for at the Consular Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs by a Russian company, institution or organisation.
