Travel Notes



Visa Squeeze

Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov signed a decree this fall that changed both the length of stay and the application process for visas. Yet the new rules are causing confusion.

Visitors to Russia holding multi-entry business and commercial visas can no longer stay in Russia more than 90 days during a 180-day period. For longer-term stays, one must hold a work visa, be a family member of a work visa holder, have a student visa, or have temporary or permanent residence in Russia. All multi-entry business, commercial and humanitarian visas issued on or after October 18th will be subject to these rules.
