In accordance with the Executive Order of the President of the Russian Federation No. 735, On Collecting Biometric Personal Data of Foreign Nationals and Stateless Persons beginning 10 December 2014 the diplomatic missions and consular offices of the Russian Federation in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Russian Visa Application Centres in London and Edinburgh will start collecting biometric data (fingerprints) of all foreign nationals and stateless persons for each of their application for Russian visa.

As a pilot project this procedure will be implemented in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Kingdom of Denmark, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, the Republic of Namibia and the Russian Foreign Ministry’s representative office at the border crossing point in Vnukovo International Airport.

Biometric data will not be collected when issuing diplomatic and official visas, nor for individuals under 12 years of age.
For nationals of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the collection of biometric data will be implemented taking into account the principle of reciprocity.

Based on the above listed information, from 10 December 2014 all applicants who wish to apply for a Russian visa should do so in person at the Russian Visa Application Centres in London and Edinburgh, otherwise applications cannot be accepted. In the event of refusal to undergo biometric procedure, the applicant will not be issued a visa.

The fingerprinting procedure is an essential element of visa policy modernisation which has been practiced by a number of consular services, including the UK. The main objective of the new procedure is to improve the security of the visas issued in the context of preventing illegal migration, terrorism and other illegal activities
