Russia is going to extend the length of tourist visas from 30 days to 6 months.

Besides extension of the visa stay, Russia is considering to introduce a simplified application procedure. In order to obtain a tourist visa, a visitor will have to provide only a hotel reservation. According to the current rules, visitors are obliged to provide also an invitation letter from a tour agency listed in the Russian government’s database. The changes will apply to visitors from all countries.

The new regulations are in a preparation stage; they will be introduced not sooner than in a year. Meanwhile, you are welcome to contact #russkie-prostori  DMC and make your trip effortless.
