Applying for a UK visa in Russia

This newsletter aims to highlight the steps involved in the visa application process in Russia. There are many different application routes, depending on each individual's circumstances.

In particular, there are premium services available, where individuals can pay a fee to expedite the processing of their visa application. This newsletter also includes information regarding the supporting documents which are required for standard visa applications from Russia.

This publication is a general overview of the current processes and rules and governments are at liberty to alter requirements, processes and timeframes at any time ― often at short notice. As such, this should be treated as a general guide and does not replace advice given in respect of specific cases. We would advise you to visit the British Embassy's website to confirm the current process prior to starting any application.
