Ivitation to Russia?

Can some one please advise me of an reliable 'seller' of one of those invites to Russia. I assume they're a cheap hotel booking?

Are these invites looked at when you're entering Russia, or is just viewed when you're getting your visa? Are they really accepted by consulates ( in my case, in Australia)

For tourist visa

the easiest way is to have a fully organised trip booked. Never mind, you will not be bothered by it, you just need to include the voucher with the visa application, to show that you are fully cared for during your stay in Russia. Once inside, nobody bothers with it. If you have the visa, nobody cares about the paperwork that precedes it.
So, find an agency that can provide the full service of obtaining the voucher and arranging the visa application. Of course this costs some money, but saves a lot of hassle.

Contact David Bergof at Stan Tours.
He got me a Russian Visa no problem, and several travel companions as well.
You won't need any Russian tour booking or anything else for the invite.
