Simplified procedure for issuing Russian tourist visas

May 26, 2021

Vladimir Putin signed the Federal Law On Amendments to Article 256 of the Federal Law On Exit from and Entry into the Russian Federation.

The Federal Law simplifies the procedure of obtaining tourist visas for foreign citizens by making it possible to obtain a tourist visa upon providing a booking confirmation for a hotel or other accommodation facility, information about which is contained in the list of classified hotels, ski slopes and beaches.

In addition, the Federal Law extends the validity period of a regular tourist visa from one to six months.
