Russian Embassy representative’s comment on a new Russian visa application form for British nationals
Question: Why does the new expanded Russian visa application form have to be introduced for British nationals?
Answer: We confirm that a new Russian visa application form is effective from 17 July 2017 for British nationals. We have to adopt the practices of our British counterparts when it comes to the whole range of questions that visa applicants need to answer. That meets the current security requirements and as well ensures equal rights of both Russian and British nationals in preparing documents for obtaining UK and Russian visas respectively.
Please note that the as soon as the new visa form is available we will notify everyone of the new format and the changes.
I understand this will be in line with the 28 page form that Russian nationals must complete to obtain a British visa.
We will ensure the process is still smooth and hassle free for all.
The Russia House Ltd.
THE NEW FORMS HAVE NOW BEEN INTRODUCED AND AS FROM TODAY ONLY THE NEW FORMS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
THE OLD FORMS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE OR VALID, SO IF YOU HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED THE FORM BUT HAVE NOT APPLIED FOR THE VISA YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE THE FORM AGAIN USING THE NEW FORMAT.
THE FORM IS 5 PAGES AND INCLUDES MANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS, ALL OF WHICH NEED TO BE ANSWERED.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THE NEW FORM ASKS FOR YOUR NATIONAL INSURANCE NUMBER, HOWEVER WHEN YOU PRINT THE FORM THIS INFORMATION IS REMOVED, SO PLEASE SEND US YOUR NATIONAL INSURANCE NUMBER SEPARATELY WHEN SUBMITTING THE DOCUMENTS TO US SO WE CAN UPDATE IF NECESSARY.
ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE EMAIL US ON email@example.com
