    Hi I am doing this tour but on a different date. Have you applied for your VISA yet? I had a look today it’s really confusing.

    Hey Jess, no I haven’t applied yet. I will be just after Easter as you need a photo that is to be taken in the last 3 months. Which date you are leaving?

    Oh right, thanks.
    I’m going on May 25. Hoping it doesn’t get cancelled with everything going on in Russia!

    Yeh, Visa’s can take upto a month to return so I would give it 2 months beforehand say end of March for you. I’m doing one after Easter for mine but have to get it back and may have to apply for a UK working holiday Visa pending further decisions yet to be made. If it’s cancelled, as this stage is a multistage trip, the Scandinavia part will probably still go ahead. For me its a hassle as I have back to back contiki’s meaning I would have 11 days to play around with between tours. Could fill it easily.
