Important information about Russian visa

To arrive to Russia and to participate in Summer School citizens of all foreign countries need a (tourist) visa. RSHU won't be able to provide an invitation because of the upcoming G8 Summint in St. Petersburg. The tourist visa can be obtained via a local travel bureau / Russian consulate in your home country. Normally for obtaining a visa you need a valid passport, a couple of photos, document about valid travel insurance and a filled form. E.g. in Finland preparation of a tourist visa to Russia takes about one week. Upon arrival, registration of the visa will be taken care by the Sanatorium (without extra costs).
