What exactly is a guest Visa and do I need one?

0 votes
I am planning on visiting my girlfriend who lives in Russia this December. Now, I am assuming that I will need to obtain a guest visa because my purpose is to stay with her and visit. How exactly would I go about obtaining this type of visa? Does she need to send the invitation letter and where would she send it if she does?
Any and all help will be GREATLY appreciated.
