According to the legislation of the Russian Federation foreign tourists traveling on cruise ships may arrive and stay in Russia without a visa for the period of 72 hours being part of an organized tour group.  A visa for St. Petersburg is required if they want to visit the city independently and not as part of an organized tour group.

Up to 90 days for tourists. The original tourist documentation or invitation must be presented to the Russian immigration authorities. The visa exemption regime does not apply for holders of diplomatic and service passports.

Citizens of Serbia with biometric passports obtained after April 09, 2008 may stay in Russia for up to 30 days. Holders of diplomatic or official passports without accreditation in Russia can stay up to 90 days. Nationals of Serbia with temporary and permanent residence permits may stay without time limits. In all other cases a visa is required. The visa-free regime does not apply to holders of Yugoslav passports.

To which countries can I travel with a Mexican passport?

The documents required for entry to Russia by a citizen of the United States are visas. A visa to Russia is issued for citizens of the United States at Consulates or Embassies of the Russian Federation. When applying for a visa, an American citizen must show an invitation sent to him/her by an individual or a legal entity of Russia. The visa applicant must also fill out a visa application form and pay the visa processing fee.

Invitation to Russia for citizens of the United States may have different aspects, depending on who is handling the processing and the purpose of the visit to the Russian Federation.

Tourist visa – visa which is processed by the foreign citizen who expresses a desire to visit Russia to see its tourist and cultural sites. In order to receive a tourist visa, a tourist invitation is required for citizens of the United States.

When applying for a tourist visa at the Consulate, a foreigner may be required to show airline tickets and documents confirming the reservation of accommodation for the planned period of stay, as well as an insurance policy.

U.S. Passport

Once the applicant has emailed this information to, the Embassy will determine if we can schedule an emergency appointment for a visa interview.    At the interview, the applicant must demonstrate that he or she is eligible to receive a visa under U.S. immigration law. Submitting an appointment request does not guarantee an appointment, and confirmation of an interview appointment does not guarantee visa approval.

Because the range of our services is limited, only scheduled visa applicants (whose names appear on the daily interview listings), those in possession of an embassy-issued pass, and U.S. citizens who need to be seen by the Citizen Services Unit are authorized access to the U.S. Embassy.

In a statement, the U.S. State Department reported an update in the status of Russia and Ukraine regarding travel recommendations for those countries, which from now on includes the warning that any American can be targeted by the Russians.

The White House on Tuesday ruled out that President Joe Biden, had spoken to his European allies about his controversial comment in which he said that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power” after the invasion launched against Ukraine.

During a speech last week in Poland, Ukraine’s neighboring country that has received the most refugees from the Russian invasion, Biden stated that Putin “cannot stay in power,” but the White House later qualified that he was not calling for “regime change” in Russia.

Biden explained Monday already in Washington that his comment was a “personal” opinion expressing “moral outrage” over the invasion, but he was “not articulating a change in policy” of the U.S. toward Russia.
