All Russian visa applications must be submitted with an Invitation Letter, also known as a support letter, which is an official invitation from Russia. Following final payment, Travelmarvel will supply clients with this letter. This letter can only be requested by Travelmarvel if copies of passports have been received. Please note this letter will only cover services booked by Travelmarvel, any other travel arrangements in Russia require an additional Invitation letter.
