To apply for the Work Permit, please, provide the following documents:

  • Completed Russian Visa application form (one per person) signed by the applicant;
  • Your current passport. It should be valid for at least six months after your departure date from Russia and have at least 2 blank pages;
  • One recent passport-sized photo with your name written on the reverse side;
  • The work invitation.
