    British don't need a Russian Visa?

    Now this is completely puzzling.
    When my father learnt I was getting a Russian Visa, he asked me
    Why? You have a british passport
    He went to Moscow in 1999 without a visa. I saw his passport. There are 4 stamps because he went there twice. But no VISA!! That means he did not need an invitation at all. He just had an hotel booked.

    Can someone explain me this? My father has no idea. Is it because Russian citizens don't need a visa to go to the UK?

    Mordan, maybe your father could hypnotize Russian customs officials?
    Anyway, Russians do need a British visa and I heard it was rather hard to get it.

    Понятно, это так, на всякий случай, чтобы MRцы не сильно доставали.
    Щас = сейчас.
