The Consulate may request additional documentation.

Visa processing starts only after we have collected all necessary documents.

All paperwork once submitted is not subject to any change of the announced visa processing period or the period of stay in Russia indicated in valid invitation available at the moment of submission. If applicant needs to make changes in submitted paperwork before visa is processed, all documentation will be returned to applicant for resubmission.

Visa fee paid is not refundable.

In case applicant requests correction in visa due to any reason other than computer misprint, applicant will have to reapply for a new visa.

It is not possible to expedite visa processing after your documents have been accepted by the Consulate.

The Consulate will not bear any responsibility for the errors in visas, which were not brought to our attention before departure from Hong Kong and beforehand, within time allowing to review such visa.
