How to fly to Magadan
Getting to Magadan Print


If you decide to come to Magadan then you will need to apply for a Russian visa at one of the Russian Consulates in USA. We will send you a letter of invitation to Russia and a confirmation for a tourist visa, which are required by the Russian Consulates. The invitation gives the grounds for getting a visa from the Russian Consulate, but is by no means a valid entrance document in itself. We send you a letter of invitation as soon as you decide to hunt with KULU Safaris and mail us your passport data. 

We usually recommend our clients contact CTTDestinations to get help with applying for and getting visas at the Russian Consulate and/or with booking airline tickets to Magadan, Russia. CTTDestinations will inform you about documents you will have to produce; they will apply to the Russian Consulate for you, and when your visa is ready, you will have it sent to your address.

It is a good idea to have some cash with you as long as some services are paid by neither credit card nor traveler's checks. Cash facilitates solving a lot of issues a hunter faces when travelling around the world with a rifle and a trophy.
