Getting There

Visas and Documentation

Everyone needs a visa to visit Russia, and it’s likely to be your biggest single headache. Your visa is an exit permit, too, so if you lose it (or overstay), leaving the country can be harder than getting in. Your visa process has three stages – invitation, application and registration.

Airports

Moscow’s three international airports are modern Domodedovo airport (code DME; 495-933 6666; www.domodedovo.ru), crappy Soviet-era relic Sheremetyevo airport (code SVO; 495-232 6565; www.sheremetyevo-airport.ru) and recently done up Vnukovo airport (code VKO; 495-436 2813; www.vnukovo.ru). Between them Moscow is connected to nearly all European capitals, New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Beijing, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore and Delhi. St Petersburg’s recently renovated Pulkovo-2 airport (code LED; 812-704 3444; www.pulkovo.ru) is the city’s international gateway
