My partner and I have a planned trip to Russia in May and I am presently trying to get our Visa sorted out.
We are intending to fly in to St Petersburg, stay a few days, then board a sleeper train to Moscow and exiting Russia from there.
I haven't done too well so far, on our first visit to the VFS centre in London we were advised that our invitation voucher needed to include all of our destinations in Russia, not just the first one. I had the exit date correct, it just didnt cover us for our second destination (Moscow).
I have contacted the voucher issuer (our hotel in St Petersburg), and requested Moscow be added to the voucher.
My first question is this: Should I be approaching our Moscow Hotel for a separate voucher? Or persist with trying to get Moscow as a listed destination on the voucher our St Petersburg Hotel has issued us?
Im tempted to just pay some money and get a same day service invitation with both destinations from russian-visas.com or whatever and forget the correspondence.
My second question regards the sleeper train. Aside from train tickets, do I need any backup documentation? Would there be an issue here?
Obviously this is our 1st visit to Russia and I don't want to mess this up further.
Time is becoming a factor now and Im getting a bit stressed out.
Any help appreciated.
