Easy E-Visa for Nationals of 55 Countries since August, 2023.

The nationals of the countries below can apply for a one-time entry e-visa that will allow them to stay in Russia for up to 16 days. They can apply for an e-visa on the website of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which works 24/7.

It takes only 4 calendar days (including state holidays and weekends) for the e-visa to be issued and it is valid for 60 days. It means, that the e-visa holder will be able to enter Russia at any time within this 60-days period, but only once.

If the nationals of these countries require a multiple visa for a longer period, they would still need to apply for an ordinary Russian visa through the embassy in their country.

The price of the visa will depend on the country. It is free for children up to 6 years old.
