Advantages

Disadvantages

The aim of the trip matches this visa type.

A trip to the Congress is a business trip, that is why business visa is more appropriate from the legal point of view.

For taking part in the Congress one-entry visa with one-month length is quite enough.

Time you spend to get this type of visa invitation

Usually consulate departments accept scanned copies of the invitations (you can get them via e-mail), but the original invitation may be also required.

Extra expenses.

If consulate department needs the original invitation, it may involve extra expenses for sending the invitation via express delivery.

Additional documents.

Consulate department may require any extra document which can take you extra time.

Fast issue procedure

Unlike business visa, tourist visa is ready in one working day, in some special cases in 3 days.

Price.

The amount of money you spend for this type of visa is less than that for business invitation.

When booking organization’s partner hotels you may get tourist visa support for free.

The aim of the trip does not match this visa type.

Tourist visa covers tourist trips only. A trip to the Congress is not a tourist trip. Please, note, when applying for visa choose TOURISM as the aim of the trip.
