“We provide comprehensive legal support in the area of Immigration law, acquiring invitations to enter Russia, both one time entry and for huge projects that require the involvement of a large number of foreign citizens.”
For visa processing to enter Russia a foreign citizen needs to have an issued invitation.
The most commonly used method of issuing invitations for foreign citizens is to start the process at the territorial office of the Migration Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia (GUVM of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation) at the place of physical registration of the inviting company. Such invitations can be issued listing various purposes of entry.
Russian legislation provides for the possibility of issuing an invitation, both on paper and in electronic form. The latter is the most convenient, since in order to obtain a visa, a foreign citizen only needs to present a short printed form of invitation to the Russian consular office, and the notification itself in electronic form is automatically sent to the consulate, which significantly saves time.
The process of issuing an invitation from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation includes:
- registration of the inviting company with the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation;
- preparation of an order for application to receive invitation and a package of documents for submission to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation;
- payment of the state fee;
- submission of an application for issuance of an invitation to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation;
- receiving an invitation from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation.
At each of the above stages, professional control is required, since there are possible mistakes, difficulties and risks. For example, you may be denied registration of a company due to the problems with corporate papers, or requested (unreasonably) additional documents, indicated the wrong purpose of entry, and so on. Large projects involving invitations for a group of foreign citizens require a special approach and an initial study of all the small checks in order to avoid disruption of the project due to refusal of entry or significant delays in the preparation of documents for foreign citizens.
It is important to understand that errors in the issuance of invitations and the subsequent entry of foreign citizens with them entail not only the risks of complicating the paperwork, but also bringing to real responsibility, up to criminal, for violation of Russian Immigration legislation.
