Travel visa

We would advise to get business visas if the participants will travel alone and will visit only the conference. If the participants wish to travel with accompanying persons or wish to go sightseeing before or after the conference, or want some freedom to buy tickets, than they should apply for the touristic visas. Accompanying persons should get their own touristic visas.
In any case, it is best to clarify the details in your local Russian embassies.

More information on how to obtain a visa as well as the countries whose citizens are required to obtain a visa in order to enter Russia is discribed in the following detailed instructions.

In order to apply for a business visa, invitation letters are required (example). The letters will be prepared by ITEB RAS for all people who will be participating in ICAW 2019. So please register and inform the organisors in time.
