VISA


How to Apply for E-visa for St. Petersburg.

Please be very careful! Even one incorrect letter or digit in your passport details is a reason for denying entry into the Russian Federation and cancelling your visa at a checkpoint.

The e-visa regime, which is available to citizens of 53 countries, began to operate on the territory of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region on October 1, 2019.

According to the established procedure, the e-visa is valid for 30 days from the date of its registration with the permitted period of stay in Russia no more than eight days.

When entering the territory of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region, a foreign citizen must present an identity document, as well as a printed notice of the issued electronic visa.

Procedure for Filling out an E-Visa Application Form

  1. Your surname, given name(s), and patronymic name (if any) must be indicated in the application form precisely as they are indicated in the first machine-readable line of your passport, irrespective of how they are indicated in the visual zone of the passport.
  2. In the machine-readable line of the passport, the surname always starts with the 6th character of the first line. The surname in the machine-readable line is separated from the given name(s) by the << symbols. The < symbol serves to separate parts of the surname (if there are more than one) and given names (if there are more than one). The patronymic name (if any) is considered one of the given names.
  3. If your surname consists of several parts (words) and they do not fit in the "Surname" field of the application form, you should indicate all the initial parts (words) of your surname that can be entered in full in this field, in the same order and exactly as they appear in the first machine-readable line of your passport. Parts (words) of the surname that could not be entered in full in the "Surname" field of the application form may not be abbreviated and/or entered in the "Given Name(s)" field.
  4. Your given name(s) and patronymic name (if any) must be entered in the "Given Name(s)" field of the application form in the same order and exactly as they are written in the first machine-readable line of your passport, even if they appear in this line as separate letters.
  5. If your passport number contains a symbol that looks like the Latin letter "O", be sure to find it in the first nine symbols of the second machine-readable line of your passport and make sure that it is really the letter "O" and not the digit "0".
  6. If your passport number contains a symbol that looks like the Roman numeral "I", do not indicate the digit "1" in the application – it is not a number but the Latin letter "I".

    Please be very careful! Even one incorrect letter or digit in your passport details is a reason for denying entry into the Russian Federation and cancelling your visa at a checkpoint.
