Summer, 2012


Crew R3

Eastern Russia's premier air carrier Yakutia Airlines has applied to the US Department of Transportation for approval to provide scheduled and charter air transportation between Russia and the United States, with the intention to commence weekly service between Anchorage, Alaska, and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia, on July 12, 2012. Yakutia plans to serve the route with its fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft. The service would reestablish a vital transportation link between Eastern Russia and the West Coast of North America.


Sportsfishermen from the US have long awaited a convenient way to get to Kamchatka, legendary worldwide for its unparalleled flyfishing. This volcano-studded peninsula, long isolated by geography and politics, is also expected to draw adventure travelers to experience its breathtaking landscapes, hot springs, unique wildlife, and the hospitality of its local Russian and native populations.  Regular service is expected to create countless new opportunities for business cooperation, as well as cultural and educational exchange between Eastern Russia and North America.   


Schedules, prices, booking and tour information 

will be available after Yakutia Airlines receives

final government approval to serve the route.

RUSSIAN VISAS: ...a riddle, wrapped in a mystery....

What kind of visa do I need?

How much will it cost?

Where do I submit my application?

How do I get a visa support letter?


The visa application process can indeed be intimidating to the first-time traveler to Russia. Even experienced travelers routinely rely on qualified travel agents to help them navigate the process smoothly. Following is a brief primer of the process to help you better prepare, and ensure that your trip to Russia is a rewarding one.


DO I NEED A VISA? Most travelers to Russia, including US, Canadian and Mexican citizens, must obtain a visa in their country of residence prior to departure.


APPLICATION:  A visa application must be filled out on-line, printed out, and a passport-sized photo affixed. The signed application is submitted along with the passport (valid for at least six months beyond the requested visa period), application fees, and visa support documents (such as official invitation or confirmation and tourist voucher) to the nearest Visa Center (see below link to the full article) or through your travel agency. Other documents may be required depending on the type of visa you are requesting.





On the application, consider adding a week before and after your actual travel dates to allow for delays or other changes in travel plans. 


Consult with your Russian business partner or authorized travel agent about your travel dates and visa duration to ensure that your support documentation is processed properly. 


Upon receipt of your visa, verify the accuracy of all the information contained therein. Making changes or corrections after arrival in Russian can be time consuming. 


Consider enlisting the services of an experienced travel agent to arrange your visa in conjunction with your other travel arrangements.

Kamchatka guidebook

While Kamchatka is certainly not a well-known vacation spot, few other places can even begin to compare to its rugged natural beauty and unique wildlife. For outdoor enthusiasts, Kamchatka provides a wonderland of activities-rafting, fishing, trekking, climbing active volcanoes, and discovering the local flora and fauna. Virtually untouched by civilization, Kamchatka's volcanic scenery, geysers, lakes, and mountains retain their primordial natural beauty. Diana Gleadhill's guidebook Kamchatka: A Journal and Guide to Russia's Land of Ice and Fire (Odyssey Books and Guides, 2007) provides a firsthand look at the wonders of traveling to Kamchatka, and is the most comprehensive guidebook to Kamchatka written in English. This stunning tale of Gleadhill's experiences in Kamchatka is an excellent starting point for planning your own Kamchatka adventure.  

Kamchatka Explorer Magazine is produced by the Kamchatka regional government's office of tourism and provides an excellent overview of opportunities for adventure and relaxation on the Kamchatka peninsula. Contact us to receive your free copy today.
