Traditionally, you can apply for the visa by personally submitting the required documents at a Russian consulate. In several countries you must make an appointment to do this in advance. In some countries, documents are submitted at the visa centers of various companies. For example, in Great Britain, Finland and South Korea, Russian visa centers are run by the company VFS, whereas in a number of European countries the firm VHS runs the center. In the USA this task is performed by ILS USA. A detailed list can be found on the site of the Consular service of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
