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:

http://www.russianembassy.org/Embassy_e ... _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!

http://www.visatorussia.com/russianvisa ... 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.
