How to apply for a Russian e-visa from Hungary
The process to apply for a Russian evisa from Hungary is very simple – all you need is a device with an internet connection, a few personal documents, and less than an hour of your time.
The first step is to head over to the Russian eVisa application form and start an application. There you will be able to choose which type of visa you plan to apply for and proceed accordingly. The form will ask you for basic information such as your full name, nationality, passport information (issue and expiration date, passport number, etc.), contact information, and more. Afterwards, you will need to upload a digital photo of yourself, pay the visa application fee, and wait for a notification of approval. Please be sure to double check all information on the application form and make sure that it is correct and up to date.
Please note that you can apply for your Russian evisa within 20 days prior to your visit, but not more than four days before your expected date of arrival in Russia.
After you have submitted your application, you can expect to hear back on the status of your Russian evisa within 2 to 4 business days. In rare cases, it is possible that the processing of your Russian visa application may take longer than expected, especially if there are public holidays or if additional paperwork is required. Your approved Russian evisa will be sent to you at the email address that you provided on the application form.
