So - I have already had three single entry tourist visas since September to visit my son in St Petersburg. As I want to visit him regularly every couple of months it was suggested on here that I apply for a business visa (even though it is not for business)
Have I got this right:
(1) I need to have already had a visa to Russia in order to apply for a business visa? I have had three, so that should qualify me
(2) I need to apply here for business support documents, which involves sending in a scan of my passport photo page
(3) When I receive them I need to complete the usual online form on http://ru.vfsglobal.co.uk - this time for a business visa - and then in my case, go in person to Manchester UK to hand it in?
(4) My next trip is June 2 - will I be able to get the visa in time?

If I have got that right then I will send in the money now. Thanks

If that is all that RR ask for, then all will be ok, they know what they are doing... Nope, I don't work for them, but if you are unsure about anything, give them a call..

Business visa is the best for the trips which you are planning, as more than 3-4 tourist visa's/year will raise questions from the Russians..

You should apply pretty soon to ensure that you get your new visa in good time..

HTH.
