Important information regarding applying for electronic visas to Russia
E-visa to Kaliningrad region, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region

It is possible to apply for e-visa ( free of charge) to visit the region. Visa is valid for 8 days from the date of entry and is valid for a period of 30 days. You are not allowed to leave the area and travel further to Russia.

It is important when completing the E-visa application that it is 100 % identical to the information in the passport. The name/surname/place of birth must be filled in exactly as they appear in the first machine-readable line in the passport. Otherwise the citizens will be turned away at the Russian border and there is nothing the Embassy can do in order to help.
Important for special characters in the name/surname: Danish letter «Ø» is indicated in machine-readable line in the passport as «OE», Danish letter «Å» is indicated in machine-readable line in the passport as «AA», Danish letter «Æ» is indicated in machine-readable line in the passport as «AE».
