I am filling out the Russian visa form and was wondering how I should answer the following question:

"Do you have any specialized skills, training or experience related to firearms, explosives, nuclear, biological or chemical substances?"

My degree and profession is chemistry (university research, nothing related to weapons!) so do I need to answer yes? Would it harm my chance of getting the visa if I do? Likewise if I answer no and they see that I work in a chemistry department would that be…

It's been a good Few years since I was last in Russia and I wanted to ask what the deal with registration is at the moment. So other than registering my visa within 7 working days after my arrival, do you still need to register in each new city you go to if you stay for more than 3 working days? Can anyone refer me to the legal texts on this in russian? I speak Russian. Just so I can wave it to any officials that give my hassle

After Moscow, if I arrive in Kazan on a Monday morning and leave on…

Hi everyone,
Apologies if this has been asked, but I've seen various different answers on the Internet.

I am planning on going to Moscow for about five days and will get an invitation letter for a tourism visa. I am in American passport holder so that should wind up giving me a three year tourist visa. I will leave Moscow in about two weeks later I will enter St. Petersburg.

Hi all-
Just wondering if anyone has used a visa service for their trip to russia that they would recommend. It looks like if we go in person to the embassy we have to make an appt and the first appt we can get is the week before we leave- too close for comfort! I've never used a visa service before and just want to get some recommendations before I do.

thanks!!!

I'm in the process of planning a trip on the TSR and can't decide which season to go in. I know that summer has the most activities available but I also wanted to go skiing (Baikalsk/Krasnoyarsk) or dog sledding, however I don't particularly want to go in winter when the natural landscape will be covered in a blanket on snow. I have heard that autumn is a nice time to go but is there still a range of summer and winter activities on offer? Or is it better off just going in summer or winter?

I did a search of the thorn tree and most of the posts are over a year old so I thought I would ask about anyone's more resent experience. Though any info would be good I was wondering about traspettation options. Are there regular fairies and if so from where? Would it be more practical to fly? Since I'll be ther in late July will I have trouble getting a fairie or room if I just show up? I have…
