SMS text message notification
In Russian visa centers you can order SMS text message notification of the status of your visa application.
You won't have to worry waiting, calling and writing to clarify whether your visa is ready, or to come to the visa center in vain to find out that the documents are still being processed. Instead you will receive an SMS text message notification immediately once your passport is returned from the Consulate to the visa center after processing. This way you will come back to the visa center only when you are sure that your passport is ready for collection.
The cost of the service is 100 SEK and it is charged in addition to the service fee.
