Visa and useful travel information

admin Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Everyone travelling to Russia is responsible for obtaining their own visa.

Please notice that regulations require that you can only do so within three months of the start of your Russian holiday.

The Russian Embassy will stamp the Visa direct into your passport and we feel it is both safer and more convenient for everyone that you send the paper to one of the many specialist travel companies in your country that deals with this.

If for any reason you have problems with your invitation paper or visa, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately.

The normal time to get a Visa is 7 working days plus mail, which means approx. 2 weeks.


After receiving your booking form correctly completed and signed we will send the special Russian invitation that is needed to get the Visa.

For the 2010 season SALMON JUNKIES will start the invitation process in the l month April.

To process your Visa application it must be sent to a consulate or local visa agent: We strongly advice you to contact one of the many specialist travel company in your country that deal with this.

You will need following

1 – Russian Invitation (You will receive an invitation from us in April month)

2 – Questionnaire form to be filled out and signed at the bottom – This questionnaire can vary from country to country, so please contact your local Russian consulate or visa support for further information – Today you can download this Questionnaire from your local consulate or travel agency web page

3 – Your Passport

4 – Four Passport photos (with some Embassies it is enough with two)

The Russian Visa Application form will require you to confirm that you have both travel insurance and medical evacuation cover valid in Russia.

Please double-check your passport and visa in plenty of time before departure from your home country. Remember a passport must be valid for six months after date of planned departure from Russia. Your visa must have your name exactly as it is written in your passport and the dates in your visa must cover your entire visit to Russia. If these details are not correct you could be refused entry into Russia
