Official Service Agent «MAKO» will provide participants upon request with the necessary visa voucher to obtain Russian visa. The voucher is solely for the purpose of visa application, and once you get it, please, prepare the required package of documents and submit it to a Russian consulate.
Payment of the registration fee, booking and prepaying Korston Hotel via personal page are prerequisites of visa support by MAKO. Visa will be issued for the duration of your stay in Korston. If you would like to visit other cities in Russia or stay longer in Kazan, you will need an additional voucher(s) from a hotel there or a travel agency.
If you choose to book another hotel, rather than Korston, it can be possible to get visa support from the chosen hotel, but please firstly check it with the hotel representative and then let us know about your choice.
