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?

    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. Dec 26, 2017 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.

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.
