About private multiple-entry visas for foreign relatives.

In connection with frequently asked questions about multiple-entry private visas for close relatives of Russian citizens, we would like to clarify that at the moment the relevant draft law has passed only the first reading in the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.

According to the draft law adopted in the first reading, in order to obtain a multiple-entry private visa for a period of up to 1 year, it will be enough for a Russian citizen to submit an application to the Consulate for the entry of a foreign relative. Issuing of the invitation through the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia won’t be necessary.

After the completion of the consideration and adoption of the law, more detailed information will be published on our website.
