Important visa information

On July 1, 2011, the Russian Embassy in the Great Britain, as well as the Russian Consulate General in Edunburgh, started to accept visa application forms completed through the special web-site of the Consular Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry http://evisa.kdmid.ru/.
Unfortunately, due to technical problems on the server of the Consular Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, visa applications are being completed with some minor failures. The Consular Section of the Russian Embassy makes all possible efforts to resolve the issue and apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
