Hi All

My son is British (as am I) and working in Moscow on a Highly Qualified Specialist Visa (HQS).

I like to visit as much as possible especially as he now has a wife and young baby who I am keen to see as much as possible.

At present, each time I visit I apply for a tourist visa which as you know is time consuming and costly.

He has recently been told that, as his father, I could possibly avoid this and potentially travel without an invitation or tourist visa as he has the HQS type visa which somehow I can link to?

I have searched around for how I go about this and called the Visa helpline all to no avail.

Does anyone know where I start with this? i.e. how I get visa to travel/stay in Russia because my son has this HQS status?

Thank you.

Ho there, as far as I am aware, the HQS visa only covers your son and his family (where the partner is also a foreign national), you will still need to obtain a visa to visit, dependant upon how many times you wish to visit and for how long within a 1 years period would show whether a visitors visa, or a business M/E visa would be the cheapest way forward.
Hope this helps
