Visa invitations

  • We will start working on your visa invitation right after we receive the registration and abstract (optional) from you;
  • Usually it takes 1-2 weeks to produce visa invitations. All invitations are generated by the chief international office at MSU and not by the Faculty of Journalism itself, thus sometimes the process can be longer than 1-2 weeks (although it doesn’t happen often);
  • While invitations for EU citizens (those bearing EU passports) are normally produced within a 1-2 week time, invitations for non-EU participants can take up to a month, since they are produced by the Federal Migration Service of Russia and not MSU;
  • If you need visa invitation, please send in the following information together with registration and abstract (optional): scanned copy of your passport (main page, scans of previous visas are not needed), your office address, name of the city where you will apply for Russian visa, dates of your trip to Moscow.
  • Please send all required information (registration, abstract (optional), information for visa invitation) in one email at;
  • An important thing you should remember is that the invitation you will receive from us is not a visa. You will need to apply for Russian visa in Russian consulate or visa center to have visa stamped in you passport.
  • If you do not need visa invitation (i.e. you bear passport issued by a visa-free country or have Russian visa which will be valid during your trip to Moscow in October 2017) but still need a formal letter from the Faculty of Journalism stating that your abstract is accepted for EJTA-2017 conference, please let us know at We will generate a formal letter which you can show at your university, for example. Please mind that this letter is not a visa invitation.
