I would also love to do this show. Always fancied going to Moscow. Not sure I can pull this and other shows I want to do off though.

According to my flatmate, they are well known there. She says the Russians will be quite excited for that opportunity. When I scored her tickets for the Berlin gig she immediately posted the news on the Russian facebook equivalent and well, she made quite a bunch of Russians very jealous.

Anyone know what the craic is with obtaining a visa?

There seems to be a lot of websites offering a visa service but i'm not really sure how much you should be paying, if at all

I had a look at the Russian embassy homepage and it seems they have outsourced the processing to some other company called VFS Global. The fees are much better than I expected though at £25.30 for standard service or £32.30 for next working day (fees).

I've always wanted to visit Moscow - could this be the excuse I have been waiting for?

i went to Russia in 2006-- you have to pay an independent agency to get your Visa. (it's a little sketchy-- i have no idea why you can't just do it at the Russian embassy!) I think it cost about $100, and I got my Visa within a few days.

Russia is a very interesting country, but I am not sure that I would want to do GA there.... Also, for those who are going to this show, you should definitely take a few days and go up to St. Petersburg-- I personally thought that it was a much more beautiful city than Moscow, and slightly more tourist-friendly....

£100 for a visa seems a bit excessive for a short visit, wonder if I could haggle

For anybody thinking of going I highly recommend the Michel Thomas and Pimsleur audio language courses, both excellent for getting a few useful phrases into your memory, and also for learning the alphabet.
