Planning to Visit a Russian Woman? Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute to Make Arrangements!

23. July 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

While it may seem romantic, planning a last-minute trip to Russia or the Ukraine is rarely a good idea. There are many steps a member must take before he can hop on a plane to meet his sweetheart, and unfortunately these steps cannot be completed in the space of a few days or even a few weeks. 

Want to know exactly what is required? Below are the steps a gentleman must take before a meeting a lady from HotRussianBrides.com.


1. Become a Qualified Member

To become a qualified member, all a gentleman needs to do is spent 1,000 credits and have a current premium membership (Silver, Gold, or Platinum). We do this because we want people to spend time getting to know each other on the site before taking the next step.

Timeframe: Varies from member to member


2. Complete the IMBRA Process

Once a gentleman has become a qualified member he is eligible to complete the IMBRA process. Please view the video tutorial below to learn how.



Timeframe: Approval generally takes 24 hours


3. Send Intimacy Request/Receive Approval

Gentlemen who wish to obtain a lady’s personal contact information and/or arrange in-person meetings, must first submit an intimacy request to the lady in question and await her approval. Without an approval, an in-person meeting is simply not possible. Please view the video tutorial below to learn how to submit an intimacy request.


Timeframe: A lady has up to two weeks to approve or deny a request.


4. Secure All Necessary Travel Documents

Each country has different entry and exit requirements. Some only require a valid passport for entry while others, like Russia, require a letter of sponsorship and a Visa. It is crucial that a gentleman have all necessary documents before he attempts to enter another country, as travelers without proper documents will be turned away and sent home at their own expense. Passports, Visas, and sponsor letters are not documents one can get in a few days, so gentlemen should be sure to apply well in advance. 

Timeframe: Varies. Depending on the document a gentlemen needs, the process could take weeks or even months.


5. Contact Lady’s Agency for Help (Optional)

Though it is not required, many gentlemen choose to contact a lady’s local agency to arrange introduction packages. An introduction package can include hotel accommodations, transportation, translation services, in-person meetings, etc. We ask that a gentleman contact an agency at least three weeks prior to his departure to ensure the agency will have enough time to make the necessary arrangements.


Timeframe: A minimum of 3 weeks

Due to various bureaucratic and site-mandatory procedures, is almost impossible for a member to plan a last-minute trip to meet a Russian woman for the first time. To avoid unnecessary stress and frustration, a gentleman should be sure to give himself enough time to plan this exciting and momentous journey.
