  • name of the city and country where you are going to issue Russian visa.

Please note that co-authors as well as accompany person should apply for tourism visa and for this check the application procedures valid in your country. Tourism visa could be also an option for late request of the invitation letter addressed to St Petersburg University.

In order to obtain a Russian entry visa, please contact a local Russian embassy or a consulate (find its location in your country here: http://www.russianembassy.net/) for further information. Some embassies or consulates may have rules which differ slightly from those of others, so check with the consulate where you will be making your visa application.

Please, be advised that in order to obtain a visa, your passport must be valid for at least 3 months after the proposed date of departure FROM Russia after the conference.

Migration card. All foreign citizens arriving to Russia have to complete a migration card given to them upon arrival in Russia. Please, fill it in carefully and keep it safe until you leave the country, as it is quite complicated to deal with your departure without it.
