Russian Business Invitation Request Form

This online form is for a business invitation only. In order to complete the form you must be able to upload a scan of your passport or your passport card information page(s).  Prior to submitting this online form verify with your Russian hosts that an invitation has not already been arranged for you. Any omissions can delay your invitation or cause it to be issued improperly.

You must upload a scanned, color copy of the information pages of your passport in order to successfully complete your Russian Business Invitation order. Email [email protected] or call 888-665-9956 if you have questions regarding this process.

Your Russian Business Invitation will be sent directly from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, or the Ministry of the Interior, directly to the embassy or consulate issuing your visa. You will not receive a copy of this document but you will receive an email with instructions once the invitation is processed.
