Last minute trip - visa?

I was wondering doing a list minute type of trip to Moscow in about two weeks.

I take it I should laugh and stop considering it since it is impossible to get a visa on such short notice, or? (I am an American citizen living in Sweden.)

It's not impossible to get visas at short notice but it could be expensive. Also there is the additional issue that you have an American passport but are living in Sweden, presumably you have residency status in which case it shouldn't be a problem.

Check opening times of the consulate since they will be closed on public hols eg Easter.

I am currently having my visa processed (i choose the 2 week option as it was only 60 euro instead of 80 for 1 week turnaround or 125, same day) so certainly in the consulate in Dublin it is possible to do it on the same day as long as your passport has over 6 months left after your departure from Russia and you have 2 pages left for stamping.
