Electronic Travel Authorization Available
See More Details

Danish citizens who wish to travel to the Russian Federation are eligible to do so under the simplified electronic visa program.

The Russian eVisa, as it is commonly known, is a single-entry visa authorization that allows the holder to travel to Russia for tourism, business, and humanitarian purposes.

Thanks to this online visa system, there is no need to spend time and money to visit a Russian embassy in person, obtain a local sponsor, or have a face-to-face interview with an immigration officer.

The process to obtain a Russian eVisa for Danish nationals is streamlined, quick, and simple. Most applicants typically fill out the form in less than 20 minutes and do so from the comfort of their own homes.

Russian eVisa for Danish Citizens: Main Features

The visa policy of Russia states that all foreign visitors (except those from visa-exempt countries) must have some sort of travel authorization before they are able to legally enter the country. This includes visitors from Denmark.

Many Danish nationals opt to apply for the Russian eVisa, which is also considered to be the easiest and most straightforward method of getting a travel authorization.

Important: The Russian government will soon launch a new, unified eVisa that will allow Danes to visit all regions of Russia with the same travel permit.

Russia’s regional visas available to Denmark

Currently, Danish citizens can choose from 3 regional Russian eVisas. They include the following:

  • St. Petersburg E-visa: Danish citizens who wish to travel to Russia’s second-biggest city, St. Petersburg, and the surrounding Leningrad oblast are encouraged to apply for this electronic visa.
  • Far East E-visa: Those interested in visiting the easternmost parts of Russia can select this E-visa. This electronic visa encompasses 8 areas, including Kamchatka Krai, Sakhalin Oblast, and the Republic of Buryatia.
  • Kaliningrad E-visa: In contrast to the Far East E-Visa, Kaliningrad is a semi-exclave near the Baltic countries and is the westernmost point of Russia.

Danish nationals should be aware that they must apply for each region that they wish to visit. For example, if an individual plans to visit Sakhalin Oblast (in the Far East) and St. Petersburg, they will need to apply for two separate electronic visas.

How to Apply for a Russian eVisa from Denmark

Unlike traditional visas, applying for a Russian eVisa is a stress-free and convenient experience.

The Russian eVisa application for Danish citizens can be filled out on any internet-enabled device, such as a smartphone or laptop.

The first step is to begin filling Russia’s electronic visa application form with the Danish national’s personal information and passport details.

The form has fields to input the applicant’s:

  • First name and surname
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Passport serial number, issue, and expiration date
  • Contact details.

When filling out the application, it is advised to go back and double-check to make sure that there are no mistakes or typos. This is because errors may lead to a delay or even rejection of the Russian electronic visa, and the Danish citizen will be asked to reapply.

After making sure the answers are correct, citizens of Denmark are requested to upload a passport-sized photo of themselves against a white background. This photo should be recent.

Finally, Danish travelers need to pay Russia eVisa’s processing fee in order to successfully submit their Russian eVisa application.

An approved Russian eVisa will be sent to the applicant’s email address within 2 to 4 business days.

Russia E-visa Requirements for Citizens of Denmark

For convenience and quick reference, these are the requirements for Danish citizens applying for the Russian eVisa:

  • A valid passport issued by Denmark. The expiration date must be at least 6 months from the intended date of arrival
  • An email address where all relevant information, along with the eVisa itself, will be sent
  • A passport-sized photograph of the Danish applicant.

Danish travelers are encouraged to keep these items nearby for easy reference when filling out their Russian eVisa application form.

Likewise, holders of a Russian eVisa are only allowed entry through specific seaports, airports, and land borders (29 in total). Danes should keep this in mind when planning a trip, and research which entry point is most convenient for their itinerary and regional electronic visa.

Individuals who wish to stay in Russia longer than the eVisa’s allowed time are encouraged to contact their nearest Russian embassy for more information.

How Long Can Danish Travelers Stay in Russia?

The Russian eVisa allows citizens of Denmark to stay in the country for a maximum of 8 days. This timer starts from the day they arrive in Russia and ends on the eighth day at 23:59.

Danish citizens are encouraged to thoroughly plan their travels to Russia (including transportation to and from their point of exit) with this information in mind and, if possible, leave some buffer time in case of unexpected delays or traffic.

The Russian eVisa is valid for 30 days after the date of issue. When entering Russia, Danish travelers should keep a printed copy of their approved electronic visa in case the border guard requests to see it.
