Visa-free access for Russian passport holders


So far, holders of the ordinary Russian travel passport can visit 81 countries, either visa free or visa-on-entry.

An agreement between the European Community and Russia on the facilitation of the issuance of visas has been in force since 1 June 2007. It has unified the cost of visas, and made it easier to obtain visas for close relatives, journalists, official delegations, transport crew members and some other groups of visitors.

Similar agreements have been signed, but not yet ratified, between Russia and Denmark, and Russia and Norway. Silvio Berlusconi, the Prime Minister of Italy, and later Alexander Stubb, the Foreign Minister of Finland have started public discussions on the future possibility for visa-free travel between the EU countries and Russia. Both the EU and Russia acknowledge, however, that there are many problems to be solved before visa-free travel is introduced. On 26 November 2008 the President of Brazil, Luis Inacio Lula da Silva and the President of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev signed an agreement on the abolition of visas for citizens of both countries for up to 90 days. According to the US Ambassador Kurt Amend US and Russia are having talks on abolishing visa regime between two countries.
