· A large foreign company carrying on investment on the territory of the Russian Federation;
· Or a company participating in the implementation of the project Center of Innovation “Skolkovo”;
· Or an international finance center in the Russian Federation.
A visa can be obtained on the basis of a request of the federal executive body authorized by the Government of the Russian Federation submitted to the diplomatic mission or consular office of the Russian Federation.
