RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT QUOTA

Invitation and visa for foreign citizens and stateless persons enrolled on a basis of the Russian Government Quota for education of foreign citizens

Citizens from the visa-required countries and stateless persons enrolling for studies on the basis of the Russian Government Quota must obtain a study visa in order to enter the Russian Federation. The visa is issued on the basis of the visa instruction (“invitation”) prepared by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.

You can find the information on the visa status (status of the visa instruction) in your personal office on the website “Education in Russia for Foreigners”. In order to obtain a visa you should contact the Embassy (Consulate) of the Russian Federation and when contacting you should give the number of your visa invitation.

On the basis of the invitation, you will be issued a single entry study visa valid for 60-90 days, which will be extended in Kazan by a multi-entry visa for the whole period of study (but no more than one year).

Citizens from the visa-required countries and stateless persons continuing their studies on a Russian Government Quota program should apply for visa support by writing to the Education Office of the KFU Department of External Affairs at education@kpfu.ru
