2023-02-21 Russian visa in Bishkek

Post by Les frères Philippe »

Hi everyone!
To give some context, we're traveling from France to Korea by car for almost two years and we're currently in Central Asia.

We're trying to get a touristic visa to go to Russia.
Some weeks ago, we tried in Almaty, Kazakhstan, but they told us we need to have a resident permit of more than 90 days in Kazakhstan to get it.

So, since some French travelers got it in Bishkek, we tried our chance as well, bringing all the documents.
But they told us exactly the same! We need to have a resident permit of more than 90 days in Kyrgyzstan to apply for a Russia visa!

Apparently, it was already the rule but they were not really looking at it... until November (2022)!
It's at least the information the guy of the Consulate told us!

Now, they only give transit visa to reach Mongolia (~35€/people).
