Information for tourists
1. Russian Visa and registration
All foreign visitors are required to obtain a visa from a Russian consulate before entering Russia. A Russian visa is a document that is placed in your passport, allowing you to enter and stay in Russia for a specified time period and for a specific purpose, such as tourism or business.
