All applicants need to obtain a student visa in order to study at PetrSU. This type of visa requires an invitation letter from an educational institution. Our coordinators will prepare your invitation after all the necessary documents have been processed.
Petrozavodsk State University will provide visa support for all incoming international students.
The first step to receiving a visa invitation is to send a scanned copy of your passport and completed application form to firstname.lastname@example.org
Before submitting an application and a scan of your passport, please be sure:
- Your passport is valid 18 months from the date of your arrival in Russia.
If not, you will need to renew your passport before applying for the program.
- You submit your application no later than 8 weeks before the expected date of your arrival.
We need this time to prepare an invitation letter. Please note that an invitation letter is only valid for one month after being issued. In this month you will need to use the invitation letter to obtain your student visa from the Russian consulate in your country.
Contact us now and we will be happy to help with your visa arrangements!
