Please be advised that we have a special procedure in place for issuing visa support for the residents of the countries not including in e-visa list. Please complete a visa support letter which needs to be printed out and filled in with the details of each guest.
Please send the visa support letter back to us by email together with a copy of your passport/passports.
As soon as we receive the completed form we will pass them to our Visa support Department who will prepare the official support documents from the Angleterre Hotel and will send them to you. Your guests (or their travel agent) then need to take these support documents together with a completed visa application form to their nearest Russian Embassy or Consulate.
Please be advised that visa support is issued only for the period of stay at the Angleterre Hotel. The visa support documents do not guarantee that a Russian Consulate will issue the necessary entry visa as certain restrictions may apply. We always recommend that our guests contact their nearest Russian Consulate for all information about the issuing of tourist visas.
