It is BUSINESS AS USUAL at Russian Connections. We are Your agency for Everything Russia.

Russian Connections is very sad about the closure of the Russian Consulate in San Francisco on September 1st.
We have worked with the Russian Consulate in San Francisco for over 20 years and have a very close relationship with the current staff and have built friendships with many past and present staff. Russian Connections will continue to processes Russian visas through other Consulates and the US. We are still Your agency for Everything Russia, and are here to help you discover Russia, in a friendly, easy way.

Your trip starts here.

Getting a visa on your own usually involves travel to the nearest consulate, long lines, no support and outdated requirements. Using Russian Connection’s services saves you from the hassle of doing it yourself.

Important Things to Know:

  • Tourist visas can not be changed or extended.
  • Check the expiration date of your passport. It must be valid at least 6 months after the expiration date of your visa.
  • Processing time, document requirements and fees frequently change for all countries. We carefully monitor all regulations and will keep this site up to date. We can also inform you of of the current requirements and fees for any specific country upon request.
  • We strongly suggest that you check with us the specific regulations of local authorities of the destination country concerning your stay there (passport registration, driver’s license validity, etc.)
