The Far East regions are Russia’s easternmost territories, comprising the area between the Pacific Ocean coast and the Siberian Lake Baikal. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs introduced the Far East eVisa in August 2017 as a means to facilitate visa bureaucracy for the region.
Far East Regions eVisas are available for travelers of 18 eligible nations for single-entry, short-term visits to the designated territories.
Many travelers need an official Tourist Visa for Russia if planing a short-term holiday trip to the Russian Federation. This process requires tourists to request a letter of invitation and fill out an application form to be submitted alongside supporting travel documentation at a consulate or embassy of Russia.
With a Russian electronic visa, however, tourists will be able to carry out the visa application procedure entirely online, without the need to make an appointment at an embassy to deliver the application in person.
