On 13 August, a bill on facilitation procedure for issuing Russian visas to foreign citizens was posted on the portal of legal acts. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation suggests allowing foreign tourists to apply for a visa to Russia without confirmation from the tour operator by the hotel reservation. Among innovations there is also an increase in maximum stay of foreign citizens in Russia from one month to six months.
There are two ways to arrange a tour to Russia.
An old one: to buy a package tour at a local travel agency and visit Russia within a big tourist group.
The modern way: create your tour to Russia online according to your own wishes and choosing the best offers!
It's amazing, but individually planned trip is often more economical than ready-to-go tour from the big tour company.
