Tourist Travel Visa for Cruise Passenger to St. Petersburg Russia!
My wife & I are arriving in St.Petersburg in early June/19 on an Oceania cruise ship. Russia is the only stop on the cruise which requires a tourist visa. Oceania says we don't need a visa if we buy their shore excursions and stay with the group when we leave the ship. That doesn't meet our needs.
My wife & I like to explore on our own and use public transportation whenever possible. It gives us our privacy, time to explore what we want to se, and costs a great deal less.
We will be in St. Petersburg for 3 days. What type of visa should we apply for that will allow us to leave the ship on numerous occassions to explore privately, and will be valid for the duration of our stay? Also, how much will visa cost, and can this website help us obtain the visas needed? Is there a cost for that service, and what is it?
Also see some reference to "invitation letters" to be supplied w/visa applications. What is that and how do we get it?
