Most foreign participants will need a valid visa in order to enter Russia. In the case of the conference, such as ICASS X, the local host (Northern Arctic Federal University) must issue a special invitation to be presented with other documents to the Russian Embassy or Consulate in your area.
Please do not delay sending this information: even if you are not 100% sure you will attend, sending this information in advance may be advisable to avoid delays.
To prepare the invitation for ICASS X we will need the following information to be sent to: visa_ICASS@narfu.ru
- Residence (if other than citizenship)
- Date of birth: DD MM YYYY
- Place of birth
- Passport number.
- Scan of your passport - a page with photo - and a previous Russian visa (if it is available). (и тут же предусмотреть возможность подгрузки скана паспорта c предыдущей российской визой, если была такая)
- Date of issue: DD MM YYYY
- Date of expiry: DD MM YYYY
- Place of work and address
- Position, research degree
- In the consulate of which city are you going to receive your visa?
