Upon receiving an invitation letter, the student should contact the Russian Embassy in his/her country to apply for a student visa.

International students applying for the visa are recommended to plan traveling and submission of documents in advance. One should submit a visa application form filled correctly and upload a high-quality photo to the Embassy’s website (Russian Education Group assists international students with filling visa application form in an orderly manner and provides them with necessary information, since Embassies reject applications with mistakes or those containing incorrect data).
Check the requirements and general information how to obtain Russian visa and how to prepare for a personal visa interview below.


  • Application form (must be completed on the web portal https://visa.kdmid.ru, printed out and signed by the applicant);
  • International Passport (Traveling Document valid not less than two years);
  • Original School Certificates (10+2 / O level / SSCE / HSSC, Bachelor or Master Degree if available), should be legalized;
  • The HIV-negative certificate (original & copy) issued not earlier than 3 months before entering the territory of Russian Federation, if the period of stay is more than 90 days;
  • One passport size photo (35×45 mm) with light background.

Keep in mind that this is a general list. Consult the Russian Embassy or Consulate in your country regarding your application!

Visas are usually issued within two to five weeks, although visa offices often offer a fast-track service for an additional fee. The cost will vary depending on where one lives, so contact the Russian Embassy consulate or visa office for confirmation.

Period of Stay under a Student Visa

Initially, the student visa is issued for three months (until the expiration date, mentioned in the invitation letter). After this period, Representative of Russian Education Group, will apply for a visa extension on your behalf and provide you with a one-year multi-visa which allows traveling to and from Russia within the validity period of the visa. When your visa is about to expire, Russian Education Group will apply for a further 1-year extension and carry on in this manner for the duration of your academic program.

Do always remember that obtaining the student visa is a very important step on your way to your degree. Allow the professionals to make it happen!
