Other types of Russian Visa

There are other types of Russian visa for very specific cases, for example: diplomatic visa, refugee visa, visa for humanitarian and religious purposes, etc.

It’s worth keeping in mind

  • The validity and type of visa should be strictly adhered to. When in Russia, you cannot change your visa status (i.e. from tourist to business or from business to educational and vice versa). To do that, you have to leave the country and re-apply for a different visa.

If the visa type is non-extendible, you must also leave the country within the dates specified in order to reapply for a new Russian visa, which can be of the same type, or different to your original visa.
