Russian Visa photo

Jump to last reply

I'm in the (somewhat lengthy) process of getting my visa for Russia, and the instructions about the picture size (35mmx45mm) are quite specific. I'm having difficulty finding a place to do pictures to this size (about 1 3/8 inches by 1 5/8.)

I'll be going to ILS in New York on Friday to apply. Does anyone know if (A) the standard size passport photo gets accepted or (B) if there would be an instant visa photo place somewhere near Maiden Lane in NYC? I'm feeling rather pitiful about this whole process, as I know that it is just as expensive and difficult for someone trying to enter the US, but it's been complicated!

Also, what about health insurance? In one area of ILS, it says that it's not required for US citizens for short stays, but in another place it says something rather random about it conforming to the provision of health insurance of foreign nationals. Any clues?

Thanks for any help you can give me! :)
