I have booked a hotel in Russia. Do I still need a tourist invitation?

Yes. Hotel booking confirmation is not the same as the tourist invitation (voucher) for a visa for Russia and the invitation is one of the required documents to apply for a tourist visa. 

It should be written from an authorized travel agency. Tourist voucher confirms that the foreign national has paid for tourist services and has acquired the right to receive it. In addition, the tourist voucher being issued to the foreign citizen confirms that the company, that issued this document, assumes responsibility for the foreigner during their stay in Russia.
The following information should be stated in the voucher: full name, gender, date of birth, passport info, travel date etc. and information about travel agency (name of the legal person, reference number, registered tour operator's number, legal address, phone number).
Viselio will be glad to issue the tourist invitation letter for you and assist you in obtaining you the Russian tourist visa efficiently. When you fill out our online form, you can just add this service and your visa will be ready on time.
