We provide a visa invitation for the visa to the Netherlands. Please note – visa invitation is not a visa – with the invitation that we will send, you will still need to go to the closest Dutch Consulate and apply for a visa.
Together with the visa invitation you will need to provide other documents – usually those documents include passport, passport size photo, filled application form, insurance, proof of means, proof of work/study and other documents.

If you submit all the requested documents on time the chance for the rejection of a visa is very small.

Visa

Nationals of the most of the countries need a visa to enter to Russia. If you are not sure if you need a visa or not – please send us an email letting us know which nationality you have and we will be happy to advice you if you need a visa or not.

If you need a visa – we will send you a visa invitation. Please note visa invitation is not a visa. With the visa invitation which you will receive from us, you will still need to go to the Russian Consulate and apply for a visa.
Together with the visa invitation you will need to bring to the Consulate some other documents (usually these includes passport, passport size photo, filled application form, in some cases – insurance, proof of finances and other documents depending on the country where you are applying for a visa). We recommend you to check the website of the Russian Consulate to see the full list of documents you need to present.

Usually it takes about 1-2 weeks to receive a visa at the Consulate after the moment you have submitted your visa application. In most of cases before submitting the visa application you need to make an appointment. Some times you can only make an appointment 1-2 months in advance. That is why we recommend you to contact the closest Russian Consulate as soon as possible to make an appointment for a visa.

Visa fee varies depending on the country where you apply. For EU citizens in most of cases the visa can be done free of charge. For non-EU citizens the visa fee is 35 or 60 euro (depending on the country where you apply for a visa). Those are the fees if you apply directly at the Consulate. In most of countries you can apply directly to the Consulate but you also have a choice to apply for a visa to the Visa Center of the Consulate, Visa Center, Travel Agency or to another organization. If you are applying through any of those organizations (e.g. anywhere except the Consulate itself) there might be extra charges.

We recommend you to apply for a visa as soon as possible. And of course – in case of any questions on any stage of visa application we will be more than happy to assist!

The course is designed for youth workers who would like to develop their knowledge and skills in the field of democracy and human rights and education in the field of democracy and human rights.

We invite experienced youth workers as well as youth workers who have none or minimal experience in the field of democracy and human rights. The course is for those who would like to learn more about the topics and determine the ways how they can develop their future work in the fields of democracy and human rights.

The following topics will be discussed within the course:

The development of democracy and human rights – what are the ways how youth workers can influence on the level of the development of democracy and human rights; sharing best practices in the field of democracy and human rights.

Other topics upon request – we try to make the course as suitable to learning needs of participants as possible and therefore we leave the space in the program to include the sessions based upon the requests of participants about what they would like to learn.

This is not just a coincidence that we conduct the course on Democracy and Human Rights in Russia – the country where both categories – democracy&human rights – are challenged a lot nowadays. Today Russia is experiencing serious difficulties in the fields of the development of democracy and human rights. That is why we believe that Moscow creates perfect environment for discussing these topics. Here you can realize how important these topics are and which significant role they can play in society.

The course is organized by the The Netherlands Education Group. Participants who will complete the course will be provided the certificates issued by the The Netherlands Education Group .

There is a high demand in good specialists in the field of the development of democracy and human rights in the world. The course could be useful for those youth workers who do not have much experience in these fields yet but would like to develop their career further in these directions. Understanding the nature of democracy and human rights, being able to see the ways how to develop them in society, having good knowledge on education in the field of democracy and human rights you will be a wanted specialist in any international organization who is working in this area! If you are considering international career in the field of democracy and human rights – in your home country or abroad – this course can be a good starting point!
