• Russian e-visa

    Citizens of 55 countries may be granted a single-entry Russian e-visa to enter the Russian Federation through the certain border crossing points.

    A single-entry electronic visa allows a foreign citizen to enter the Russian Federation once and stay in the Russian Federation on a guest or business visit, as a tourist, as well as to participate in scientific, cultural, socio-political, economic, sports events and make relevant connections and contacts. If the purpose of your journey to Russia does not correspond to any of the above, you should apply for a traditional (non-electronic) visa.
