What do you need to visit Russia?

Russian Visa Requirements

The United States and Russia have had a mixed relationship, to say the least. However, there are opportunities for US citizens to visit this country on a number of visas. If you are planning to travel to Russia in the near future, the first question is usually: do you need a visa to go to Russia?

Types of visas to visit Russia

The most common way to see Russia is a short-term transit visa used by travelers for a few days in Moscow or other major hubs. These allow up to 72 hours in the country, but cannot be obtained at the airport. You’ll have to apply in advance at an embassy or consulate. In addition, there are business and tourist visas, student visas for those who wish to study abroad, private visas for family members, and humanitarian visas for volunteers.

Do you need a visa to go to Russia?

In nearly all cases, as a US citizen, you are required to apply for a visa prior to departing on your trip to Russia. Unfortunately, this can mean an untimely trip to a consular office during standard business hours.
