Russia: Visa Application Process

White Sun of the Desert writes about the Russian visa application process: “Then at the beginning of this year they decided that all applications had to come with a notarised translation of every page of your passport, including all visas and stamps therein. I have a 48-page passport with stamps and visas from Kuwait, Oman, UAE, Qatar, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea, Japan, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan. Some poor soul has to translate this lot at horrendous cost to my employer, then take the translation to a notary public.”
