eVisa for Russia: More information

Most of the countries require foreign visitors to apply for some type of online or offline visa or travel authorization before entering the country. Russia is no exception and requires its visitors to apply either for Russia visa which is offline, or Russia eVisa for one of the districts. So before you apply you have to choose whether you want to visit the Far East, Kaliningrad, or Saint Petersburg.

However, this occurs mostly due to the fact the person poses a threat to security or national interests.
