Do you need a Visa? 

Most of our guests will need a visa to enter Russia in 2021-2022. There are two options you can choose from.

The first option is to obtain a Business Medical Visa. This is a humanitarian-like visa. It is valid for 90 days only with a double-entry allowance. With this type of visa, you are guaranteed entry to Russia even in a pandemic whichever country you are a resident of and whichever country you are traveling from. However, this type requires a little more paperwork. If you choose this option, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to get the visa. We will need to issue an invitation from Russian authorities on behalf of our clinic. This will take 4 weeks. Then with this invitation, you can apply to your local Consulate which will take another 2 weeks.

The second option is to get a regular Tourist Visa. US citizens now can apply for a 3-year visa with multiple entries. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you should be a resident of a certain country to pursue this option. As of today residents in the USA, UK, Germany, and many other countries. The process of getting a tourist visa may take up to 1 month.

If you are a resident in the United States of America or applying for a Visa from the USA there are three Consular departments that are now available to issue visas. They are located in Houston, New York, and Washington DC

Flying to Perm 

Most likely you will fly to Moscow or Saint Petersburg first. Perm is then a quick 2-hour flight from Moscow or Saint Petersburg to the east. Primary Moscow airports are called Sheremetyevo (in the northern part of Moscow) and Domodedovo (south to Moscow). 

If you are traveling from the USA there are multiple options available. American Airlines (Oneworld Alliance) will fly to Moscow through London. United Airlines or Lufthansa (SkyTeam alliance) will do a stopover in Germany. There is also a modern option to board Turkish Airlines with a stopover in Istanbul. Last but not least and probably the easiest, you can always use Aeroflot Russian Airlines (SkyTeam alliance with Skytrax 4 rating) to fly from Los Angeles, New York, or Miami to Moscow direct. Economy class return is usually available for less than 900$.

About the city of Perm, Russia 

Perm is one of the greenest cities of Russia and it is located on the banks of the river Kama which is nearly 0,7 miles wide in the city part. The city is nearly 300 years old so you will explore a mixture of historical architecture and modern glass-concrete buildings. It is an industrial and high-tech city: we construct everything from rocket engines and weapons to robots and fiber-optics.   It is located in the eastern part of the Ural Mountains on the very Eastern edge of Europe. The city of Perm has a population of 1 million people.

Perm is well known across Europe for its opera house. Safety is not an issue to worry about. Last but not least — bears. Sorry to disappoint you — you are not going to find any bear closer than 100 miles away... except one. It is made of bronze and you will love it — right in front of the Ural hotel.

Please enjoy pictures of Perm below.
