/ Short visit to Rusia - tourist visa?
Thanks - looked at the agency option; I needed it pdq, but they were too slow...anyway, lesson learned.
If it's less than 72 hours you may be able to get a transit visa - no invitation required for that. You do need to have proof of when you'll be entering/leaving the country.
I use Russia House in London for my visas.
Quick depends on the service you buy.
It can be slow anyway. In the middle of last year even on fast visas it was still something like 2 weeks. It has improved over the last few months.
