As the world’s largest nation, Russia has a lot to offer as a travel destination. From bustling cities to a variety of stunning landscapes, there is plenty to discover. Since July this year traveling to certain regions of Russia has become easier for Lithuanian citizens and not only, with the introduction of the electronic visa for Russia.

Since July 2019, traveling to certain regions of Russia has become easier for Lithuanian citizens and not only, with the introduction of the electronic visa for Russia.

Electronic visas can be applied for in minutes from anywhere in the world. They are single-entry, region-specific travel permits. For Lithuanian nationals, eVisas allow access to:

  • The Far East District regions
  • The St Petersburg and Leningrad region
  • Kaliningrad Oblast

Travelers that wish to visit other regions of Russia will still need to visit an embassy or a consulate and apply for a traditional visa.

There are still some nationalities that are not eligible for an eVisa, such the United States, Canada, and the UK, due to the current political situation.

How Long Can Lithuanians Stay in Russia with an eVisa?

Like most citizens traveling to Russia for tourism purposes, Lithuanians need to possess a valid visa. The types of visas available for different citizens vary based on their nationality.

While the traditional tourist visa requires citizens to go in person to an embassy or consulate and submit a paper application, the eVisa is completely online and very simple to request. The Russian eVisa is usually processed within 4 days and sent to the applicant via email.

The three different types of eVisas allow travelers to enjoy freedom of movement in the specific region for up to 8 days, although the validity of the visa is of 30 days from the date of the issue. The visa is valid for a single entry into the country.

Citizens can travel with an online visa for several purposes: tourism, humanitarian reasons, cultural reasons, business, sport, and scientific-technical relations.
