Russian Visa Madness



So we need a Mongolia visa before we can apply for the Kazakhstan visa, and we need a Mongol and Kazakhstan visa before we can apply for the Russian visa.

We can't apply for a Mongolian visa until 3 months before we are meant to arrive, otherwise the visa expires.

Also, the Russian visa requires a Tourist Voucher or Tourist Confirmation document from a hotel we are staying at... only problem is we aren't staying in a hotel.

I tried to call up the consulate in Sydney to ask how we can logistically work this out and some scary man picked up the phone and in a thick Ruski accent "Call back at 3pm". I pleaded that I was calling about a visa, and the website said to call between 9 and 12.

The only response "Call back at 3pm".

This is going to be tricky!
