GUIDELINES FOR VISA INFORMATION
RUSSIAN BUSINESS VISA:
If you are attending the Exhibition as an exhibitor or expect to undertake business whilst there, we recommend that you travel on a Business visa. An invitation from the Ministry of Internal Affairs is required. Our official travel agent can obtain this for you (please refer to the relevant Visa Support Order form in the Travel Service Manual for charges and processing times – or visit http://www.ctmsevents.com/events/mosbuild12013/
If you are a passport holder of a country not on the restricted list of countries (see page 3 of the Travel Service Manual) and are attending an exhibition we recommend that you travel on a Tourist Exhibitor/Conference visa. Our official travel agent can obtain this for you (please refer to the relevant Visa Support Order form in the Travel Service Manual for charges and processing times – or visit http://www.ctmsevents.com/events/mosbuild12013/
RUSSIAN TOURIST VISA:
If you are simply visiting the exhibition and not conducting business, you can travel on a tourist visa. Your ‘invitation’ will take the form of a ‘Tourist Voucher’ and a ‘Hotel Booking Confirmation’. Our official travel agent can obtain this for you (please refer to the relevant Visa Support Order form in the Travel Service Manual for charges and processing times – or visit http://www.ctmsevents.com/events/mosbuild12013/
). Please note
: if you arrive at Russian immigration wearing a suit holding a laptop in one hand and a briefcase in the other you may have them confiscated until your exit from the country - these items are hardly usual tourist attire and will obviously raise suspicion about the true purpose of your visit.
All visa supports are issued on the assumption that you will be entering Russia via a Moscow airport. If you are not, please alert your Travel agent to this fact before ordering your visa support - additional documentation will be needed if you arrive through Samara or Nizhniy Novgorod, for example.
RUSSIAN VISA REGISTRATION:
All foreigners must register their stay within 3 working days of arrival in Russia if staying 7 working days or more. If you are staying in a hotel the hotel will normally do this. If you’re not staying in a hotel you should ask
your sponsor (the company providing the VSL) to register your presence in the country. You will need your passport and Migration Card (which is given on your flight to Russia or on arrival at the Russian border). A fee will be charged for this registration process. Registration can take a minimum 2 working days for tourist visas and 7 working days for business visas.
Failure to register the visa within 3 days of arrival can result in a fine of up to USD1700.00 and/or deportation.
