VISA SUPPORT DOCUMENTS

VSC would be pleased to arrange your BUSINESS VISA SUPPORT
Due to ongoing changes in the Russian ministry's ways and means of issuing such documents, this process can take from six to 14 working days. We recommend applying for a TELEX visa support document to save time. Charges vary depending on the type and length of visa; from $200 to $300. Single entry business telexes can be acquired in 7 working days.

VSC would be pleased to arrange your TOURIST VISA SUPPORT
Tourist visa support documents for airline, train, and bus passengers are available immediately for only $50 per passport.

AirBnB and Private Apartment Rentals
These are now recognized for Russian tourist visas issued by the Russian Embassy in Canada. You still need a voucher for a "private accommodation" listing the address of the rental apartment.
