Russian Visa at the Embassy in Yerevan, Armenia

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,

Hi,
I know it's an old topic but I Just applied yesterday for a Russian business visa for 1 year multy entry in Yerevan. I paid 35 dollars +- and 10 days working. I'm not resident here. European passeport.
If it could help someone...

Hi Niro,

Could you please give some more info? What is your nationality? Are you really going there for business or did you ask for that type of visa because you knew it was easier to get? How did you get your LOI and how much did you pay for it (and how long did you have to wait to get it)?

Thank you,

Adèle and Alex

We (Dutch couple) are also planning to apply for Russian tourist or transit visa in Yerevan but unsure of the possibilities. If anyone has any recent information, we like to know! Thanks!

Hello,

I am also interested to get russian student visa in Yerevan.
According to the Russian consulate website info about visa, is stated eather the Armenia resident permit or a visa with more that 90 days. And according to the Armenia migration website there is a visitor visa up to 120 days, which comply to what Russian consulate states, so looks like they flex the tramit to make it possible, although could from 10 to 20 days and I don't see any chances of urgent option.
