Embassy report : Russian visa in Shanghai

Postby reexyyl » Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:30 am

Hi,
Here is my experience for getting a tourist visa in Shanghai (but I guess it's the same in every russian consulates/embassy of China)

First, if your Chinese visa is not valid for at least 90 consecutive days, the processing time of getting a visa will be 10 working days. The price of tourist visa is 250/500 yuans (5/3 working days) + 200 yuans fees. The paper they give you after your submission enables you to stay in hotels and to travel by train (no plane though).
There is a russian woman speaking English, just need the usual documents for Russian visa (LOI, medical insurance for some countries...). If you cross the border by train, it has to be written on the letter of invitation.

Tourist voucher = LOI
If not, I do not know what a tourist voucher is.

From an agency I got the voucher and also a paper detailing the program of my trip.
About plane tickets, I only had the way out. On the program of my trip it was specified "crossing Russian border by train" so I didn't need to show any ticket.

I've got my tourist voucher for Russian visa on ivisaonline.com
This is pretty easy way to get it. Russian embassy didn't asked any questions about this voucher.
