Malaysian & Singaporean can Apply Russia Travel E-Visa Online from 2021!

Russia will start a national electronic visa from the beginning of 2021 with 52 countries including Malaysian and Singaporeans eligible to apply for the Russia E-Visa. This allows the citizens from the 52 countries to enter and roam free within Russia for up to 16 days.

E-visas will be issued online for tourism, business, humanitarian and guest trips. Applicants do not need an invitation, hotel booking or any other documents to confirm their reasons for travel. The consular fee is $40 (free for children aged under six).

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a directive last week, making this official. At the moment, there is no definite starting date in 2021.

The pilot launched in 2017 with certain restrictions: foreigners were only allowed to cross the border and visit in the Far East Federal District, or the city of St. Petersburg and Leningrad region, or Kaliningrad region. Now the electronic visa will apply to all of Russia.
