Britain Helps Russian Visitors To Save On Long-Term Visas

 Great Britain plans to lure Russian visitors with more flexible visa conditions.

      According to Bryan Redford, the Regional Director for Europe and the Mediterranean, the UK Border Agency, the British consulate is very loyal to Russians wanting to visit the UK. In 2011, 96% of all applications had been accepted. Although figures for 2012 are not yet in, it is unlikely they may be lower. With this in mind, the British visa centres simplified procedures for long-term visa applications. 

      These 2 and 10 year long visas currently make up 6-10% of all applications, but a growth is expected. Short-term (6 months) visas are available for GBP78, 2-year visas for GBP270, and 10-year visa costs GBP716. 

      Presently on trial in St. Petersburg, as well, is a priority scheme for visa applications marked as urgent. A priority review means that a visa application will be reviewed and a decision will be made in 3-5 working days. After a successful trial the scheme will gradually be rolled out throughout other British consulates in Russia.
