How much money is required in a bank account if I am to apply for a business visa? I'm getting mixed responses from different places.

Real Russia seem to state that a final account balance of £3,000 seems to be enough. However, I emailed the the Russian visa helpline and they state that the money only needs to cover the first trip at £100/day.

Hello,

Unfortunately, the Russian Consulate does not always state a certain minimum amount required in these bank statements, they sometimes offer guidelines.

Experience has shown us here at Real Russia that a final account balance of £3,000 seems to be enough when applying for a Russian Business Visa which is valid for 3 months or longer.

Which Russian visa helpline did you e-mail? It is possible that when they refer to £100 per day, they are referring to visas that are valid only for a maximum of 1 month.

I hope that helps answer your question.

I was also told a £100 a day which is crazy as who would spend that amount every day in Russia unless you have business (and a work permit) for Russia.
