E-Visa Myanmar & Ethiopia

To make it easier to apply for an e-Visa for Myanmar and Ethiopia, we have launched an easy-to-use online form on our website. So you can now conveniently apply for and receive your visa for the two countries - without the submission of documents - online. 

Important note regarding visa application photos - 11.07.2018

The Russian Embassy implements the requirements for timeliness and quality with immediate effect on the photo, which must not be older than 6 months. Doubts of the consulate are sufficient to prevent the acceptance of the photo. We urge you to only use 3.5 x 4.5 cm color photos with a light / white background no older than 6 months in the application. Only then a timely processing and return can be ensured. Thank you for your comprehension.

Registration of the visa in Russia - 11.07.2018

Please note that visas for stays of 7 days or more must be registered after entering Russia. As usual, the hotel will register you upon check-in. Alternatively, this can be done by the authorities in Russia or via AVS allvisumservice GmbH. Failure to comply with this rule can result in significant delays and termination issues.
