Visa and Official Invitations

Visa requirements for travelling to Russia differ from country to country. We encourage our international colleagues to contact Russian consulates in their countries of residence as soon as possible and inform us about the required documents, so that we can assist in the most efficient way!

Even though, most of you will only need the invitation from the Ural Federal University, some might require the special type of invitation to be prepared with the help of the Department of the Federal Migration Service. In order to simplify the procedure, please, send the following information/documents to e.v.alesenko(at) (Elena Alesenko) and icmf14(at)

  1. Scan of your Passport
  2. Place of birth (country, region/state/province, city/town)
  3. Country and city of residence
  4. City and country where you are going to apply for the Visa
  5. Affiliation (position, full name and address), for unemployed – home address.
  6. The dates of the stay

    Please, for the invitation, contact us before May, 15th.

N.B.! The amount of rooms with reduced price in Panorama and Park Inn is limited. The conditions for these rooms are the following: those who want to use this offer should inform us at e.v.alesenko(at) (Elena Alesenko) and icmf14(at) In this letter, please provide the following information:

  1. Full name;

  3. Type of the room;
  4. Special needs (if any, like early or late check-in, arrival time, airport pick-up). Note that to pick you up at the airport we will need your flight details and contact information.
