Obtaining visa in Portugal

0 votes

I am a portuguese citizen looking for a tourism russian visa. In Portugal there's a pt/ru travel agency called 'Lusitana Sol' that helps people to obtain visa. However, they tell me that I can't rent an apartments (airbnb, etc) in Russia because these entities won't regist my visa support. What should I do in order to have more flexibility? Is there someone from Portugal that has been in a similar situation that could help me? Thanks in advance.
