It looks like it finally happening! Starting from July 1, 2019, free e-visas will become available for tourists visiting our region.
Can I apply for a visa to Kaliningrad?
This option is limited to citizens of the following 53 countries, including 38 European nations.
- China (including Taiwan)
- The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
- San Marino
- Saudi Arabia
- Northern Macedonia
- Czech Republic
Unfortunately, it doesn’t include all countries. Remember that there is a list of countries with visa-free entry to Russia.
How to get it?
Looks like it will work like this:
- Fill in the request at least in 4 days before arrival. (Starting from July 1st)
- Wait for approval
- Show the confirmation at the border
E-visa will be issued for a single entry, max 8 days stay, valid for 30 days.
We will keep you updated. And provide a step-by-step guide! Feel free to contact us with any questions in the comments below.
p.s. Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines! And welcome to Kaliningrad!
UPD: worth to mention the ongoing discussion on similar e-visas for the rest of Russia.
