Visa SupportInternational 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Please, make sure you specify that you are a participant of the international conference Codex Sinaiticus with your request.
