Russian Visa

Practicalities Russian Visa

          To enter the territory of the Russian Federation you will most likely need a visa.  While the Russian government is trying to simplify the procedure of getting a Russian visa it is still quite bureaucratic and not a transparent process. Many tourists are put off of visiting Russia due to the hassle and cost of getting a visa and from time to time there is talk of cancelling visa requirements for citizens of the European Union in an attempt to encourage tourism, but Russia has made it clear that this will only happen if the European Union does the same for Russian citizens.
