How to obtain a Russian business visa

To obtain the business visa to Russia you will need to receive the official invitation from the company-organizer (Light Metals Ltd.), which is issued by the Department of the Federal Migration Service of Russia. Light Metals Company will file a petition to the Department after that the Federal Migration Service will start preparing the invitation. This procedure takes 22 working days, because the documents should be checked by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.

To file the petition please send to the organizing committee the following:
1) Completed Visa form 
2) Scanned copy of the main page of your passport,
3) Payment of registration fee and visa support fee (30 euro per 1 participant)

After the invitation is ready the organizing committee will send you the electronic version of it by e-mail. Then you should print it and apply for a business visa to the Embassy of Russia in your country.
Please note that the official invitation does not guarantee you will be granted a visa. Organizing committee cannot send the letter to an embassy or consulate for you nor can we contact the embassy or consulate on your behalf. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to obtain the necessary paperwork for entry to Russia.
