Holders of diplomatic and service passports intending to visit Russia on official Business will continue to apply in person at the Consulate General / Embassy of the Russian Federation United Arab Emirates.
Before applying, please ensure you have a clear understanding of the “purpose of your visit” - do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa as this is entirely the prerogative of the Embassy and/or Consulate General of the Russian Federation United Arab Emirates to decide on.
Please access the “Know Your Visa Type” section to understand the requirements for a particular type of visa.
Please select the type of visa you are applying for to obtain further information on the requirements.
Please check the requirements carefully and fill in an online application form which is available in the section “Online Application Form”.
