St. Petersburg launches electronic visaErika
The Government of the Russian Federation has announced that citizens of more than 50 countries, including Spain, may visit St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region with an electronic visa.
As of October 1, the city known as the “Venice of the North” has opened its doors to a greater number of visitors, via a free visa that should be applied for no later than four days before the scheduled travel date.
As reported on the website of the St. Petersburg Committee for the Development of Tourism, the visa is valid for a 30-day period, though the permitted stay may be no more than eight days.
The new immigration measure was announced during the “Welcome to St. Petersburg!” Road Show, which has toured cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia and Lisbon during the month of October to promote the tourist potential of the city.
