Visa Free Travel to Russia

Visa Procedure       Visa Types       Basic Documents       Visa Free      Registration


 

As a general rule, foreign citizens arriving to Russia (leaving it) must have a Russian visa. However, Russian legislation provide for some exceptions on this rule, allowing Visa Free Travel to Russia for foreigners.

1. Tourists travelling by International Cruise Ships and Ferries are permitted to visit Russia without a visa for a period of up to 72 hours. However, they must stay aboard a cruise ship. Passengers of cruise ships and ferries have the right to go ashore without a visa during port calls only within an organized tourist group, which must be accompanied at all times by a tour operator licensed by Russian authorities.

To maximize your time ashore you can reserve a tour organized by your cruise liner. In case a tourist wants to leave the ship alone, stay in Russia longer or leave the country by other mode of transportation a visa is required.

Passengers of cruise ships and ferries who have not purchased one of the available tours and do not have a visa will not be permitted ashore.

Please note! Cruise passengers cannot obtain a visa in Russia. Visas are issued in the country of residence before departure.

It should be noted, that for visa-free travel to Russia ferry passengers (passengers of cruise ships don’t count) can arrive only to the ports defined by the current Russian legislation:

  • Port of Arkhangelsk
  • Big port of Saint Petersburg
  • Passenger Port of Saint Petersburg
  • Port of Vladivostok
  • Port of Vyborg
  • Port of Kaliningrad
  • Port of Korsakov
  • Port of Murmansk
