Depending on nationality, foreign guests require a visa for entry in Russia. Visas must be obtained prior to arrival in Russia.
There are several types of visas: tourist, business, diplomatic and others. Fees and issuance times vary according to the purpose of the visit to Russia.
For guests staying at Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow, the hotel's reservation department upon request will provide a visa support letter, enabling guests to request the issue of a single entry tourist visa at their local Russian Embassy, Consulate or Visa center.
To obtain a visa, an invitation from a Russian organisation (or foreign organisation based in Russia) must be registered with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which will then send the visa, issuing instructions to the local consulate or embassy.
