Getting a business visa as a student who's planning to travel in Russia for tourism, and not business, possible?

0 votes

I want to travel in Russia during 2 months this summer. Knowing that a tourist visa gives you only 30 days, do you know if it is possible to get a business visa? I'm a student and won't travel for business, but for tourism!

Thank you for your reply!
