Russian Federation Visa Policy

The visa policy of the Russian Federation covers the requirement for foreign nationals who wish to enter the country. According to the current policy, all visitors, with the exception of those from visa-exempt countries, must apply for visas and get them before they are permitted to travel to Russia, enter the country, and stay for some time. The visa exemptions are signed based on multilateral and bilateral agreements with other countries. Currently, Russia has active agreements with many countries whose citizens may either be able to apply for electronic visas or are completely exempted from holding visas if they are coming to stay for only a short period.

If your country is not on the visa exempt or electronic visa list, you must apply to a foreign mission abroad to land the visa.

 Furthermore, as a foreign national in Russia, you are expected to comply with the rules and regulations while you are within their territory, including border and customs regulations. The authorities may deny entry, shorten your stay, or deport you if their laws are violated.

Russian Federation Visa Free Policy

Currently, there are over 60 countries whose citizens are not required to hold visas before entering Russia if they don’t wish to spend more days than is allowed under the visa waiver program. Apart from Belarus and South Ossetia citizens who may remain in Russia indefinitely, other visa-free visitors can only stay in Russia without visas for 90 days within 180 days. Tweaking the period by leaving and reentering the country is no longer accepted like it was in the past.

 Visitors who violate the policy and overstay for up to 180 days are banned from future entry for three years. If they overstay up to 270, that attracts a five-year ban, and anything above 270 will be a 10-year ban.

Visa Free Countries

The Russian Federation has a visa free list of selected countries whose citizens can stay in Russia for different durations.  How long they stay depends on their nationality as determined by the visa policy of Russia.  While citizens of Belarus and South Ossetia may stay in Russia indefinitely, other eligible nationals can stay for 90 days, 60 days, 30 days and 14 days respectively.

Visa exempt visitors are free to enter as tourists, pursue their business interests or transit through a Russian airport to another country.  However, they are not allowed to work or study without obtaining a work study visa.

Russian e Visa

As part of the government’s drive to speed up visa application processing, the e-visa program was launched for selected foreign nationals. This visa is valid for 60 days from the issue date and allows the holder to stay in the country for up to 16 days. During their time in Russia, they can move within the Federation. Electronic visas are issued for the purpose of tourism, business, sporting, socio-political, cultural, and scientific events. Applicants are advised to apply for their e-visas no earlier than 40 days and later than 4 days before the day they plan to travel.

E-visa applications are processed up to four days from the submission date.

Key Information About Russian Federation e Visa

Here are some vital details about the electronic visa of Russia you should know about.

Not Extendable: The first thing you should bear in mind is that this electronic visa is not transferable from one visitor to another. The general rule is for each visitor to apply for their own electronic visa before entering the country. The same is the case for persons traveling with minors; they must apply for a visa on their behalf.

Application Fees: There is a processing fee attached to the process which must be paid using a credit or debit card. This fee is not refundable even if the visa is not issued.

Apply With The Same Passport: You must travel with the same electronic visa used for the application, not a different one. This is because the visa is electronically linked to the passport so traveling with a different passport will be tantamount to having no passport at all. Furthermore, the passport must have at least 6 months validity.

Only Valid For Approved Routes: This electronic visa is only valid for approved routes so endeavor to plan your itinerary properly. Transit visitors should also use only approved airports for their connecting flights.
