Tips and explanation
Your Russian visa application begins here, starting from 10 euro service, excluding VAT and visa fees. You do not have to go to the consulate in person.
Some changes in August 2016 regarding the visa application for Russia can be found here, click here.
You can apply for a visa from 2 months before arrival in Russia. If you are planning on a world trip and you are not in the Netherlands to apply for your visa in the two months prior to arrival in Russia, then you can try to make a list in Excell with the countries you are going to visit. However, the diplomat can still refuse your application because the rule remains to apply for a visa application only from two months before arrival.
