Americans/Australians applying for a Russian Visa in Riga/Tallinn?

0 votes
Hi we're looking for the quickest possible processing time for Russian visas in Europe. We're EU residents (not citizens) and our local consulate uses VHS to do all of the application work. They have a minimum 10 day turnaround and only count 3 working days a week. Has anyone (esp. American/Australian) had faster visa processing elsewhere?

Any help is appreciated?
