Prime Minister of Russia has passed a bill of certain nationals to enter Far East Russia without visa.
People from India, China, UAE, Turkey, Singapore, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Oman, North Korea, Kuwait, Qatar and Algeria are allowed to Russia’s far east without visa permission. Only these countries nationals have the permit to visit far east Russia without any visa.
The Prime Minister said “we have allowed certain country people to Russian far east without having visa to Russia. The traditional and mandatory visa procedures will not affect these tourists to far east Russia. This will improve the tourism in far east”.
All the foreigners from the above mentioned countries have to submit their data in a specific Russian website instead going through visa procedure. In case if the Russian officials questioned any foreigner in far east Russia then they have to show their passports which is quite enough.
