Russian Embassies Around the World

Most foreign passport holders are required to obtain a visa to visit Russia, which in the majority of cases currently involves applying in person from a Russian embassy or consulate. At the moment, there are two types of electronic visas for travel to specific regions of Russia available through a simple online application, the eVisa for Far East regions and the Kaliningrad eVisa.

This is expected to change when a Russia electronic visa is implemented in the near future, which will allow eligible citizens to obtain travel authorization exclusively online. However, it is still currently necessary to apply for a visa for Russia from one of the 250 embassies, consulates and permanent missions that represent the country around the world.

What Can I Do at a Russian Embassy?

The numerous Russian Embassies around the world are responsible for the following functions:

  • Promoting Russian culture, economy, and tourism abroad
  • Communicating messages between the Russian government and the government of the country where the embassy is located
  • Informing the Russian government about important political, social, economic or military events in the country where the embassy is located
  • Organizing visits by Russian officials and preparing treaties and agreements between the countries.

Most of the embassies also have consular functions, which mean that they are responsible for processing Russia visa applications, issuing and renewing passports for Russian residents in the country, registering births, deaths, marriages, or adoptions for Russian citizens, and providing assistance to Russian citizens abroad. Even if a country does not have a main Russian embassy, it will be more than likely that Russia will still have consular representation in the region.
