Is transit visa necessary for flight connection in Moscow (changing from Sheremetyevo I to II)?

Jump to last reply

I have a question for a friend. Her daughter is flying from London to Delhi on Aeroflot. She has to connect in Moscow, arriving at Sheremetyevo I and departing from Sheremetyevo II.

She will be in India for two months, and then reverse the trip, again laying over in Moscow and switching from Sheremetyevo II to I.

The question is: Does she need a transit visa because she is going from I to II? And can the return trip be on the same visa, or does she need to get two?

My friend is very upset about this situation (the trip is less than 2 weeks) and is getting conflicting info from the airlines and the airports that she is talking with. Her daughter is currently studying in Oxford, and this involves her going into London for the arrangements.

Any info you could provide will be very welcome!
