Slovaks can go on a tourist or business trip to a few regions in Russia without paying for a visa as of October 1.
To travel to Saint Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, Slovaks need to apply for a single-entry electronic visa, the Foreign Affairs Ministry informed on its website. This may include a tourist, humanitarian, and business visa.Read alsoRead more
“The entry to other areas in the Russian Federation on the basis of the electronic visa is not possible,” the ministry added.
Pre-selected border crossings
“The electronic visa is issued for 30 days with the right of stay within eight days of entry,” Slovakia's Foreign Affairs Ministry said.
Slovaks can use the electronic visa only at certain border crossings in the territory of the Leningrad Region and St Petersburg:
- airports: Pulkovo Airport
- ports: Vysotsk, Bolshoy Port Saint Petersburg, Passazhirskiy Port Saint Petersburg
- road border crossing points: Ivangorod, Torfyanovka, Brusnicznoje, Svetogorsk
Entering or leaving the regions by rail with the electronic visa is not yet possible for technical reasons, the ministry added.
