If you are planning a trip to Russia in the coming months, you will need to navigate the visa process, and this is something that your tour operator can help with. In fact, travelling through this amazing country is only possible thanks to the Trans-Siberian Railway, and with an online search, you can find a reputable tour operator who can handle every aspect of your trip.
UK Citizens Applying for a visa to Visit Russia
While Russia offers many countries a free visa on arrival, if you come from the UK, you will need to apply for a tourist visa, which is something the tour operator can assist with. Most established Trans-Siberian tour operators work with a partner, who helps their clients to process the visa, and this makes the process so much easier. Once you have located such a tour operator, they can help in many ways, and have lots of information on their website, including what to pack, interesting places to see and a route planner.
Downloadable Visa Application Pack
Once you have booked your tour, you will be given a link to the visa application page, where you simply download the right application, and this will tell you exactly what is required. In the unlikely event you need any help, there would be a UK number you can dial, and the entire application process is completed online.

Planning your Journey
In the event you are planning on experiencing the Beijing to Moscow Trans-Siberian railway journey, talk to an online tour operator who specializes in this route, and they can even help you plan your holiday. Starting in Beijing has many advantages and ending the trip in Moscow leaves you a few more days to explore the Russian capital.
Do Some Online Research
There are a few different routes on the Trans-Siberian Railway, with branches that take you to the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar, and if you are going to experience Mongolia, you will need a separate visa, and the tour operator has that covered, as they work in partnership with a well-known visa application company in the UK. Vladivostok is a unique city that you would certainly enjoy, but most tourists want to spend time in Mongolia, living in a Ger, and interacting with the nomadic people. The Mongolians are a very hardy race, and their local wisdom has been passed down from generation to generation, enabling them to live in a very harsh environment, and they are very hospitable folk who love to meet westerners.
