Foreign travelers coming to Russia to conduct business, participate in forums, congresses and conferences need to apply for a visa on the basis of an official invitation from an inviting organization.
All participants of the Apimondia Congress in Ufa in 2021 will be given every kind of support in obtaining the official invitations, which then can be used to apply for a Russian visa in the country of stay.
Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is very supportive for the procedures required for international congresses and other major international events taking place in Russia.
