Dear visitors,

in connection with the Russian Government’s Directive No 635-r, issued on March 16, 2020, as well as Directive No 1170-r, issued on April 29, 2020,  the consulate section of the Russian Embassy in Luxembourg temporarily stopped to accept documents and ceased the processing and issuing all categories of visas for foreign citizens intending to travel to Russia. This is being done to protect the people’s health and to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection.

Please accept our apologies for possible inconveniences.
