Russian E-visa for Polish Citizens

E-visa Application from Poland

Russia is one of the most popular destinations in the world: spectacular natural landscapes, bustling cities, and world-class museums — the largest country in the world has something for everyone.

Before they can travel to Russia, however, Polish citizens are required to obtain a visa. Several types of visas will allow Polish citizens to enter Russia. However, the region-specific Russian electronic visas now allow them to apply for a Russian visa entirely online, without having to visit a Russian travel agency or embassy. The Russian eVisa is also fast: Polish travelers can expect to have their visa to Russia in approximately four days.
