It will take longer to get Russian visas as of 15 June 2010.
The Russian Embassy told me today that due to their closing two offices in Canada, the number of visas being processed at the embassy would rise, and processing times would get longer.
Regular processing will be at least ten (10) working days; while fast processing will be about three (3) working days. At the moment there is no possibility of same-day or 24 hour processing come mid-June. However, that could change as the new application processing load becomes clearer to the staff. Stay tuned!
