Russian transit visa

Russian transit visa

A transit visa to Russia is granted when a passenger needs to travel through Russia, where their final destination is outside of Russia.

The transit visa can be issued for a single or double entry and allows staying in Russia for a maximum period of 3 days if travelling by air or 10 days if travelling by land.

If you have a connecting flight at the same terminal within 24 hours (e.g. Singapore – Moscow – Houston by SQ) and stay in the transit zone, no visa is required. This transit visa waiver is not applied to passengers travelling to the Republic of Belarus or the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Required documents:

  • Visa application form. As from the 1st of October 2013, all visa applications must to be applied using an online visa form only. After you have printed the application form out, amendments by hand are not allowed. That is why it’s very important to write down your application ID and answer/password to a secret question, to be able to log into the system and make changes in your form if required later;
  • Original passport with the 6 months’ validity beyond the validity of the visa. Minimum two blank pages should be available for stamping the visa;
  • 1 recent passport-size colour photograph (3.5 cm x 4.5 cm) on a white background – can be arranged in our office;
  • Original and a copy of a residence permit for non-Singaporean passport holders (EP, PEP, PR, DP, S-Pass) or the IMM27E (disembarkation) card for eligible nationalities. The residence permit can be returned the next day after lodging the documents;
  • For EU passport holders, travel insurance covering Russia, which is valid for the whole period of stay in Russia (original and copy);
  • Confirmed reservation of travel to Russia as well as from Russia to the final destination / next connecting point;
  • Copy of a visa to the third country if required;
  • Completed and signed Global Singapore visa order form.

An online application form can be completed in our office with the professional assistance of our consultant; this would help to avoid any mistakes and to ensure smooth visa processing. An additional surcharge of 20 SGD will apply in this case.
