E-visa to Russia

From August 1, 2023, citizens of certain countries will be able to travel to Russia under the new system of a single electronic visa. Originally, it was only used to visit St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad. Fortunately, in 2024, the government has changed this and you can use the e-visa to travel throughout Russia. It is important to note that you can apply for an e-visa only for tourist purposes, as well as for participation in scientific, cultural, economic, socio-political, sporting events and for making relevant connections and contacts.

E-visa to Russia for foreigners cannot be obtained upon arrival, it must be obtained at least 4 days prior to arrival.
