VISA – Russian visas are required if you are a Filipino passport holder. For those in the Philippines: We can apply together as a group sometime around mid-April or May first week. However, I will be able to send out documents to you so you can apply individually. There are no requirements other than the round trip plane ticket and the invitation letter which will be sent to us.
 
Note: Do not use your passport or travel abroad between May 1 – July 1, 2020. We need to apply Group VISA and need at least 3 months before our hike.
 
 
Best,
