Post subject:  visa-entering

I have a criminal record in the U.S for d.u.i and resisting/obstructing arrest. I did not go to prison for this ,but I did serve 4months in the county jail and was put on probation for the remainder of the sentence. Both of these are felonies. I have not had any legal issues for over 5yrs and have not drank for over 5 yrs now. Will this record prevent me from entering Russia. I am single, but not really looking for a wife maybe if I meet the right person. I want to see Russia and meet some Russian people and possibly start some exporting buiness.

Hello Gary and welcome to the board.

Not sure if they ask if you have a criminal record on the application....

take a look at this page: ... _visa.html

May I also suggest you visit this site and ask them about your record......they are specialising for Visa's to Russia and I expect they know about it! ... ments.html

Let us know please. Thanks

Hi Gary

Somebody with more experience in Visa's to Russia from USA has told me, as your crime was a drinking driving offence.... he doesn't think it will be a problem for you getting a visa.

Good luck anyway.
