Visa question

Hallo to all,

my son wants to visit Moscow in Febr. für one week.

He knows, that he needs an invitation for the visa. He has booked

the trip (flight and hostel) on his own - so he can´t get the invitation

from a tour company. Now he gots the information from his

hostel, that hostels (not like hotels) can´t make the invitation.

Does anybody know, where to get an invitaion from??

Google Russian visa service. They can get the visa and the invitation letter for him at the same time, for an extra fee of-course. This is how I do it. No need for fax's to and or from a hotel. AIM.

I would strongly suggest you do "one stop shopping", that is, pay a few bucks extra, and have a reputable visa agency handle ALL of this (MAYBE thta is what the last writer's suggestion would entail, but just wanted to be clearer). You can do an inquiry here (literally a search) when you come up with whatever local visa agencies are available. Here in US, I first go to the Russian consulate (Embassy) site to see if they have any references there...

Thanks a lot for all you input. I understand, that it is way better to let it

do someone for you as doing it on your own.

I will give all the information to my son.

Best wishes, Q.
