Russia E-visa for Slovenian Citizens

E-visa for Slovenian

The Russian Federation has introduced the Russian electronic visas as part of it’s ‘Digital Economy’ initiative as a way to make travel easier for citizens of a selected group of countries.

These electronic visas can be obtained online by filling out an online application for the specific region in Russia that the applicant wishes to travel to.

Even though the option of applying for a traditional Russian visa is still in place, travelers will find that it is easier to apply for a Russian eVisa instead as it eliminates the need to visit a local embassy or consulate. Travelers will also receive their Russian eVisa electronically once their application is approved which makes the process all the more convenient.

Applying for a Russian E-visa from Slovenia

Applying for the Russian eVisas is a really simple and straight-forward process. Slovenian travelers will have to fill out an online application with their personal and passport details in order to apply for their online travel permit.

It should be noted that the Russian federation requires foreigners to finalize their travel plans before applying for the Russian eVisa. Some questions about the details of their travel plans may be asked as part of the online questionnaire.

Travelers will also need to provide a recent photograph taken against a white background, a valid health insurance policy covering the entire duration of their stay and a copy of their valid passport. The photograph and proof of insurance coverage can be submitted at a later stage in the application process.

Slovenian applicants should note that there is also a visa fee associated with applying for the Russian eVisa which has to be paid using a valid debit or credit card in order to finalize the online application.

Once the traveler submits the online application and provides all the supporting documents, they can expect to hear back on the status of their application within 4 business days.

They will then receive their Russian eVisa via email. They are advised to print it out and take it with them when they travel.
