The most important thing to know is that you cannot obtain a visa to enter Russia on arrival.

Most hotels in Russia will provide some assistance in initiating the visa application process. They may be able to provide a “voucher” which must be presented along with any application for a Russian visa. There is a cost for the visa voucher and once you have the voucher from the hotel, you then begin the application process in your own country.

In Australia, consult the website of the Russian Consulate
