Most likely we will leave on April 14th at 08.00 from Lillestrøm and return on April 21st in the evening.
We will go by bus from Lillestrøm to Nynäshamn, and then by ferry to Gdansk, and bus again from Gdansk to Kaliningrad. We will arrive in Kaliningrad some time in the afternoon, depending on waiting time spent on the border between Poland and Kaliningrad.
In due time before we go, I need to scan your passports so that we can get invitations from the Russian authorities. LAST DATE for handing in passports: December 15th!
We also need to fill in application forms, which we will do in class in January. Bring a photograph. Below you can see the demands for the applicants concerning passport and photograph from the Russian Consulate:
1.2. Valid national passport (original only and it should have at least two blank pages). It must be valid not less than six months after the expiry date of the visa.
IMPORTANT! Any damage of any page of the Applicant’s passport (especially of the page with a photograph) will result in the rejection of a visa application.
1.3. One recent passport-sized photograph (35 x 45mm) of an Applicant, stapled to the upper right corner of an application form. The photograph must be:
a) of true likeness and not more than 6 months old; showing full face;
b) taken without headgear, head coverings and hats;
c) taken against a plain, evenly lit light background.
Photographs that do not meet these requirements won’t be accepted.
