Visa Support

International participants arriving from outside Russia need visas to enter to the Russian Federation. A visa to the Russian Federation is a document permitting you to stay in Russia for a specific period of time.

We suggest two ways of obtaining a Russian visa to you:

Through a travel agency in your country.

Through the travel agency "Kosmos" in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

If you choose to use the travel agency "Kosmos" service, please submit your request for a visa by email. Email your request to Elena Pavlova at with the subject line: A participant of the international conference Codex Sinaiticus. You can also call her at +7-812-327-72-56 or fax at +7-812-327-74-29.
