Next year Moscow holds the World Cup, and the number of tourists may increase. I don't have any interest in the WC, but it is likely that I must visit Russia in July.

So I wonder if Russia imposes a limit on the number of visas issued, either in a month or year. I can't apply before June, so I wonder if there is a limit and I might not obtain the visa because of reaching the limit.

  • Or in the broader scope, is it common that countries that require visas for tourists set the limit? – Blaszard Dec 26 '17 at 2:35

    Russia will be allowing visa free access for World Cup Ticket holders provided they register as a fan online. This will obviously be where they will be blocking undesirables. So visas should not be affected, too much. – Rodney Hawkins Dec 26 '17 at 7:28

  • No, there is no limit as to how many visas you can apply for. For most countries, you can apply for an many visas you would need. – QuIcKmAtHs Dec 27 '17 at 3:34

There's no such thing. As long as you're eligible to get a tourist visa, you can get it regardless of how many other tourists have already applied.

Source: Never heard of such practice; scooped a few web sites about Russian visas, they don't talk about such limitation.
