After receiving Invitation from us you can apply to the Russian Consulate in you country or in a country where your Russian visa will be picked up. If a person travels with any local tourist company the entire job will be done by Priora Tours. If you are on a cruise with a stop in St Petersburg the procedure is much easier.

Visa support for cruise line passengers (tour-tickets)

If you are on a cruise and have a stop in St Petersburg you do not need to go to the Russian Consulate in your own country beforehand. Book your shore excursions with us and we provide you with a special tour-ticket.

Attention! Cruise passengers may disembark from the ship without a tourist visa only if they participate on tours organized by a local company authorized for issuing a special "tour-ticket" valid for the disembarking!!! Our travel agency is fully authorized for that.

Surely on cruise there are some tours on sale but the prices are really high especially if you want to buy an individual tour. Don't hesitate to contact us and we'll be happy to work out a shore tour on your request and it will be far more cheaper then the tours of the ship.

If you choose to book your shore tours with us you don't need visas! We will provide you with special tour tickets which allow you to pass immigration office without any problems. To provide your tour tickets we need the following information: full name, date of birth, passport number, passport expiration date, citizenship.

At the immigration office in our port you have to show:

  1. passport
  2. tour ticket which we provide you with

We will meet you as soon as you pass the passport control. You will see the sign with the name of the company Priora Tours so it will be very easy to find us. A car or a minivan will wait for you a few meters away, just outside the terminal.
