I'm travelling to Russia in May on an Australian passport and I have a query about the letter's of invitation needed for the visa.
Do I only need one letter of invitiation for the trip (the hotel in Moscow has already provided me one), or one each from the three hotels we are staying at?
The information online seems to vary, but this is a cut and paste of the guidance on the Russian Embassy site in Australia;
Russian Tourist Visa
The following documents should be submited to the Russian Embassy or Consulate to obtain a Tourist Visa to enter Russia:
1. Your original passport with at least 2 blank visa-designated pages (passport must be valid for at least 6 months after intended departure date from Russia).
2. Two copies of Russian visa application form, completed and signed.
3. Two passport-size photos signed on the back.
4. If Tour Group or Cruise Passenger: Letter from tour company or cruise line confirming itinerary and including a copy of the confirmation from authorized Russian travel company which shows the reference number and confirmation number for the visa.
5. If Individual Travel: Confirmation of hotel arrangements from authorized Russian travel company, or directly from the Russian hotel, showing reference number and confirmation number for the visa.
(note it doesn't actuallly mention a "letter of invitation" per se
- but I realise I DO need one)
