Multi Entry Long Term Visa Australian

0 votes
Hello there,

My name is Yanush and I am Australian citizen. I have been planning my Russia trip for a long time now and will be going there in August.
In short, I plan on starting in Vladivostok and go overland to Moscow. I want to try and get a multi entry visa because I plan on going into Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Abkhazia. All up spending roughly 3 months in the region. I have never been to Russia before, so no previous Russian visas, but I have been to Central Asia/Caucasia.

I read that my only option is to get a "3 Year Multiple Entry Business Visa". I have read some conflicting advice online and got a bit lost as to how I would go about doing this or if it was possible. For example, I read that it might not because I haven't been to Russia before..

If this can't be done, I think I will have to keep getting new Russian Tourist Visa in Mongolia and double entry one in Kazakhstan (for Abkhazia).

I would appreciate any help or information that someone has!

Thanks very much!
