I had a few quick yet long-winded questions in regard to the three year tourist visa process.
First, since the original invitation is ostensibly a single-entry invitation, do I still specify multiple entry on the embassy application form?
Second, in the guide on this site it states that I should, "still specify the intended dates of your travel during the next 3 years." I spoke with someone at ILS who seemed to indicate that this meant I should put the exit date on my visa applications as 3 years minus one day on my application. Is this correct? I suppose in this case it's more "first entry date" and "final exit date" for the whole of the 3 year visa, but I just want to make sure since I know that the application should reflect the original tourist invitation (which, of course, is only for one month).
Third, in a similar vein, for the itinerary that ILS requests do I attempt to list every tentative visit over the next three years, each being no more than 90 days (I can actually do this since, being a student, I'll only be traveling during the summer months) or do I just list the first entry date and then the three years minus one day date with a list of all the cities I'll theoretically be visiting?
Fourth, if I took a day trip to Finland, would that start the you-must-wait-180-days-before-re-entry process, or would I have no problems getting back into Russia?
Last, if my health insurance already has a form of travel insurance included, do I still need separate traveller's insurance?
Thank you ahead of time for helping me clear all this up!
