I was planning on visiting Moscow in April, and I'm trying to figure out how to get the visa. I have a few questions:
1) I'm going to request a Letter of Invitation through visa.ilcentre.ru. Do I need to book a hotel before I order this?
2) I live in Chicago, and I'm wondering, when I get my Letter of Invitation and I put together all the necessary documents, Can I mail them to the Visa Processing Center? Or is this no longer allowed through mail?
Thank you for all the help!
