E-visa for Russia

After the spread of the Covid-19 virus is sufficiently overcome in the opinion of the Russian authorities, the introduction of a new type of visa to enter Russia is expected: the ‘Unified e-visa’. This type of visa will be valid  throughout the Russian Federation for a short-term stay for guest or business visits, tourism, or participation in scientific, cultural, socio-political, economic and sports events. An invitation is not required.

The citizens of 52 countries will be allowed to apply for the Unified e-visa, among which Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and France.

Visa applications will be facilitated on a special website and by a mobile app of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Unified e-visa is a single-entry visa with a validity period of 60 days from the date of registration. The permitted period of stay in the Russian Federation on basis of this visa type is not more than 16 days from the date of entry.

Unified e-visas will be issued within 4 calendar days from the date of the application.
