What are the visa requirements for digital nomads visiting Russia?

All digital nomads hoping to visit the country must be fully prepared and have the correct visa. Visas require digital nomads to present a standard application, passport photographs, proof of sufficient funds, and a valid passport at least six months from expiring. Depending on their individual circumstances, additional documentation may be needed, such as evidence of health insurance or proof of hotel reservations. Additionally, all travelers must apply for an invitation or visa authorization before submitting a visa application — luckily obtaining this invitation is not very difficult and simply requires providing some basic personal details. Keeping in mind the various requirements for successful entry into Russia can help ensure that digital nomads begin their tour without any hassles or complications.
