Russian Visa at the Embassy in Yerevan, Armenia

Postby Rapp Scallion » Tue May 12, 2015 12:49 pm

First off, great forum.

I'd like to tell you about my experience trying to get the Russian visa at the consulate in Yerevan, Armenia since I haven't found anything about that in the Embassy reports.

I tried to apply for a Tourist visa in July 2014. I was sent home because the consulate only issues tourist visas for Armenian passport holders OR for foreigners with an Armenian residence card. Bad luck, I had to cancel the trip to Russia.

There is another Russian consulate in Gyumri, but I don't know about the rules there. Also I don't know if it's possible to get at least a transit visa at both places.

In a nutshell, Armenia is not the right place to get a visa for Russia.

Thank you Rapp! I added it.

One wonders, what is the right place to get a Russian visa?

Hi Rapp,

We were also plannnig to get a Russian transit visa in Armenia but same story, you have to be resident (a Russian speaker called the embassy in Gyumri and this is the case here also)

We did manage to get a transit visa in Tbilisi, Georgia though which was relatively straightforward, here's some info-

Hope that helps,
