Getting a Russian Visa in Paris
This was by far, the hardest Visa I ever got. We got our Visas on French passports, though these requirments apply to all EU passports. Real embassy website here (beware of fakes).
- Forms from the embassy
- Proof on insurance (expatriation and 30 000$ coverage). I bought it for my brother from L’Europeene Assurance for 32 Euros. I was covered under my apartment insurance.
- Photo of you – make sure to glue it to the forms before you go to the embassy.
- An invitation letter, we got this via our hotel in St. Petersbourg at a cost of 25 EUROS for 3 people, payable upon arrival.
Once you have all these items, you should be ok.
Good luck.Published on September 21, 2009
