Love the complaints regarding the visa from those that don’t realize that Russia simply reciprocates the requirements their citizens have to fulfill when applying for a visa to the U.K.

Actually the biometric data they gather will be used by Putin to clone you, and after you meet the clone, it is the clone that will return from Russia.

The price of the visa is mental
As part of the visa application process, all applicants based in the UK aged 12 or over will need to visit a visa application centre to submit biometric data (scanned fingerprints). These are located in London, Manchester and Edinburgh

That's disappointing considering how the Russians suffered at the hands of the Germans in WW2

It's not even that difficult. British people do not know how difficult is for others to get a visa to come in The UK. To wait for a week in a front of the embassy at -20 degrees, 1000 people waiting to get in when they only allow about 100 per day, out of those 5-10 get the visa but all of them pay extortionate fees to be rejected...To go with the right documents and with everything to prove you're a good citizen and to be rejected for stupid reasons such as at 22 years of age you don't own a house, you're a student and you do not have a job because you have to be at university minimum 40 hours per week, and so on.

Understand your point but part of the reason countries give us preferential treatment is because the pound is stillvery strong against some currencies. Gambian beach resorts are suffering because Thomas Cook collapsed and no convenient flights in to the country at present.

There is a good reason for UK immigration policy. If we simply allowed anyone entrance to the county without proper due diligence, then our country would be flooded with people, who we would not be able to support. You have to think that lots of people want to come to the UK to live and work and create a better life for themselves. Having a weak immigration system would open the floodgates.

Visa's are granted and denied based on criteria such as the ability to be able to support themselves whilst in the UK, all of this is documented. The most important criteria on any application is "Will the person return to their country of origin after their visit". This one is difficult to prove, but the applicant must go some way to try to convince UK immigration that they will return. This is the basis on which most applications are denied. And for good reason, as over stayers cost tax payers money. So to simply say that you get rejected for stupid reasons is not correct. If you fulfill the criteria, you will get a visa, if you don't you won't.

If Russia wish to make British Citizens jump though hoops because we make their citizens, then so be it. Ultimately it will cost their country money, as most people will not bother.

I never said every one should be allowed, I said British people do not know how hard is to get a visa.
With regards to being rejected for stupid reasons, I am afraid I am right. I do work for the government, and once we reach certain numbers or we run out of money, I have to make things more complicated, as I cannot go over these numbers. Yes, officially I am not looking for reasons to deny things, but I'm hoping you give up, as I make things difficult for you. This is a common practice in lots of departments, believe it or not.

A simple example: 'do you have any relatives living in the UK?'. If the answer is yes, there is a chance your visa is rejected, you will not come back to your country, as you have support here. If the answer is 'no', again rejected, as you have nobody to support you if you run out of money and you will become a burden.
I know very well why visas are in place, it is the British people who believe everyone is allowed here, hence the Brexit outcome. About the fairness of getting a visa, I think you are a bit naive. Another example, this is related to US. In any other country, your visa is rejected and that is it. At the US embassy, if rejected, they tell you not to come again for to apply for the next so many years. How is that right? Maybe next year you meet all the criteria. Moreover, they stamp your passport where clearly stated not allowed for the next 5 years in US. This will affect your chances to get a visa elsewhere, as other countries do not know why you are not allowed in US, the assumption is you did something bad, so they will not give you a visa. Probably this will not happen in the UK, but I can assure you, with regards to visas, in lots of countries the human rights at the foreign embassies are not taken in consideration. And also, they do not have to give you a reason why your visa is rejected. But they take your money.

Also in certain cases, you can only grant so many visas per year to certain countries. Once you reached the number, you have to deny all the applications. How do you justify this to the applicant. You also cannot close the desk and say 'run out of visas". You continue to process applications, as you take payments. You know the outcome already. Do you think is normal to reject somebody 's visa who lets say has a dying relative abroad? Simply, because you reached the numbers?

My point was anyway, if Russians are not allowed here without a visa, why English should be allowed there without one? I know very well about visas, I could not visit my parents for 15 years when they lived in the US, my visas were rejected every single time. Including the time my father was in hospital with little chances to survive. Once I've got a British passport, I suddenly became a different person and I was allowed entry.

Finally, with regards British not bothering to visit if they need visa, I agree, why should you, if it is easier to go elsewhere. With regards to Russia losing money on this, not a big deal for them. You probably realise other nations, Russians, ex USSR countries, Asians are spending lots when visiting. Not generalising, but British people are up for a bargain. I can definetely tell you than in Eastern Europe, they target other nations rather than westerners. The mentality there is to become reach over night, not in long term. They rather have somebody who spends 5000 than 5 people or more spending 1000 each.

Went to St Petersburg last month - absolutely loved it. Gorgeous architecture, incredibly interesting history, very cheap and the people are very friendly.

The visa really isn’t too big of a hassle for those based in London, Manchester or Edinburgh, though I can see it being a pain in the arse for others being as though you need to report to a visa centre in one of those cities.

We spent roughly the same amount as this deal on flights and so were happy to spend £100ish on a visa.

I think you should wait. No offence, I'm coming from Eastern Europe where on surface things look ok, but in reality the mentality is still old and divisive. Particularly in Russia. While you will more than likely be safe, you may not like the way they look at you, the way the talk to you, you may not be treated very nice. Try tò go to Budapest first and see how you feel there.

Mmm not true, why aren't all the whites in Southern Africa leaving? I went to Zimbabwe 2 years ago, the Zimbabwean whites continued as normal, in SA, Namibia & Zambia they all carried on as normal. Maybe I am blind, but I don't believe they're being persecuted.

Also Angola is a different case...
They had 2~3 Civil wars in last 2 decades all driven by Western corporations struggling for resource control (remember blood diamond) so divisions still exists today... so dont blame the Angolans if they are weary of foreigners...
