E-visas introduced for visiting Russia’s Kaliningrad Region

From 1 July 2019, electronic visas are introduced for visiting the Kaliningrad Region of Russia. E-visas may be obtained online at http://electronic-visa.kdmid.ru/klgd_home_en.html.

Nationals of 53 states are eligible for an e-visa. These include all EU member states, except the United Kingdom. An e-visa only allows a single entry (for business, tourism or a humanitarian visit) for a maximum term of 8 days. It allows entry into the Kaliningrad Region through border crossings located in that region, i.e. by direct flight to Kaliningrad (but not via another Russian airport), by sea, railway or road. An e-visa does not allow travel to other regions of Russia.

Introducing e-visas is a part of Russia’s policy to simplify visits by foreign guests. They have been succesfully tested since 2017 in Vladivostok and the Primorsky Kray, and in other regions of the Russian Far East since 2018.
