The application is the basis for starting work to organise the transport of an organised group of passengers (OGP). A travel company shall independently prepare an application (the form is provided in the Sample Documents section) and send it to the personal manager at the High-Speed Transportation Directorate of JSC Russian Railways.

There is a single application form for all organisations. Application forms are completed for a single OGP of ten or more persons travelling on the same route, on the same train and on the same departure date. The application form shall be certified by the head of the travel company and the finance manager, and shall be drawn up on the organisation’s letterhead. The application form must include the first and last name and contact telephone number of the travel agent directly responsible for organising the journey.

Requests are accepted from 90 to 10 days before departure. Requests submitted less than 10 days before departure are accepted subject to availability. Each application must be accompanied by two copies of the passenger list, certified by the head of the travel company and the finance manager.

The OGP list must include the details of the group (or tour) leader on a separate line. The group (tour) leader must not change during the ticketing process. The OGP list must comply with the prescribed form (enclosed in the Sample Documents section) and contain up-to-date details.

Once you have submitted your application, you will be assigned a personal manager, who will check that the travel details you have provided are correct and up to date, and that the required number of seats is available on the service. You will receive an invoice within two business days after the application has been processed. The invoice amount depends on the class of travel you have selected and contains the amount required to reserve the seats and issue the travel documents. After the invoice has been paid and confirmation that the funds have been credited to the account of the High-Speed Transportation Directorate has been received, the seats will be reserved as requested. Reservations must be made at the ticket office of the High-Speed Transportation Directorate in the presence of a representative of the travel company.

  • power of attorney form M-2 for the right to issue travel documents upon request (dated and with an outgoing number), including passport details, the representative’s signature and company seal;
  • a payment order (with a bank stamp);
  • original of the application form (in one copy);
  • the passenger list (in duplicate).

If the representative of the travel company fails to appear within the prescribed timeframe to process the travel documents, the application will be cancelled. The reservation fee is non-refundable.

The travel company can make changes to the OGP lists and submit the final version to the ticket office after the seats have been reserved and before the date on which the representative is due to collect them.
