To apply for a visa to Russia you need an invitation. If you do not already have an invitation, you can order one:



We at Alt Rejser always do our utmost to carry out the agreements reached, but we are just agents, who provide contact to the Russian authorities responsible for issuing visas in Denmark. Currently, the processing times of the Russian authorities are indicative, and it is not possible for Alt Rejser to guarantee that the Russian authorities can comply with the processing times promised. We consider it to be but a temporary affliction and are confident that the situation is likely to normalise within the next few weeks.

What is a Russian visa?

A visa to Russia is an official document attached to your passport which allows you to enter/leave and stay in Russia for a specific period of time.  A Russian visa specifies date of arrival and departure and lists personal as well as passport details. A portrait photo (passport photo size, in colour, taken on a white background) is attached.
In other words, a Russian visa is a joint entry- exit and short-term residence permit. Losing your visa or extending your stay in Russia beyond the date of departure specified in your visa, may create problems.

What is an invitation from Russia?

In order to apply for a visa to Russia, you need an invitational letter. If you buy accommodation and/or travel at Alt Rejser, we give you the invitation for free. Do not fill in the visa application until you have received your invitation.
If you have purchased accommodation and/or travel through another provider, you can buy an invitation by filling in our visa order form. If you have further questions about how to obtain an invitation from Russia, do not hesitate to contact us. 

What is legalisation of documents?

Travelling to Russia, you might need official Danish documents (e.g. birth or marriage certificate). If so, the documents must be legalised. This applies to both personal and business documents). A legalisation is an endorsement by the Russian embassy.   
At Alt Rejser, we can help you with that. If you have documents (e.g. driving licence) that need to be Apostilled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, we can help you with that as well. It will take 2-3 working days. As a private motorist in Russia, you do not need an international driving licence, if you have an Apostille Certificate translated into Russian attached to your driving licence.
