I am planning to visit Moscow this winter as a solo tourist. I am a Hungarian citizen. I booked airplane tickets myself. I was informed that I will need an invitation letter, and I think I will go this way: (How can I get an 'invitation' to Russia?), but now the tourist visa application online form asks:
the options are: None, Travel company. I think I will need to select travel company because the description says:
In the case of a tourist visa select "Travel company" from the list and give the name and address of the travel company. In the case of business visa select "Organization" from the list and enter in the "Name of organization" name of the host organization, enter the address of the organization and TIN in the appropriate fields. In the case of private visa select “Individual” from the list and enter the name, birth date and home address of the host. In the case of transit, select "None" from the list. Reference number: printed on the bottom line of approval of a foreign tourist "Референс №». It is necessary to introduce whole number with leading zeros.
Confirmation number: printed on the top line of confirmation of a foreign tourist. The number can contain only numbers or numbers with letters. You should only enter the numbers.
However I do not have a travel company.
What do I do?
- Select "None" from the drop down so that I don't have to fill in travel company(this seems to be against the description that says select travel company for tourist visa)
- Select Travel company and the Invitation letter company will be my travel company and they will provide appropriate details? as in (How can I get an 'invitation' to Russia?)
- Apply at some additional travel company, because there is no other way?
- Some other option?
I didn't expect the visa application to be this complicated. I hope I get there.
