There are different e-Visas available for Finnish travelers to visit designated territories in Russia. Depending on the region they are interested in visiting, they will need to apply for a Russian E-visa that is specific to that territory.
This also means that travelers from Finland who wish to visit multiple regions in Russia will need to apply for different Russian E-visa for each territory.
There are currently 3 different types of Russian E-visas that travelers from Finland can apply for:
- The Russian E-visa for St. Petersburg and Leningrad
- The Russian E-visa for Kaliningrad Oblast
- The Russian E-visa for the Far Eastern Federal District
The Far Eastern District of Russia includes the territories of:
- Primorsky Krai
- Sakhalin Oblast
- Kamchatka Krai
- Amur Region
- Khabarovsk Krai
- Chukotka Autonomous Okrug
- Republic of Buryatia
- Zabaykalsky Krai
Nationals of Finland should be aware that there are designated entry and exit ports for the designated region they will visit on the Russian E-visa. Travelers should schedule their arrival and departure from these designated ports of entry/exit that are valid for travel using the Russian E-visa for that region.
Finnish citizens who wish to stay longer in these Russian territories, or visit another part of Russia for which an E-Visa is not available, are currently required to apply for an embassy visa from the nearest government diplomatic office of the Russian Federation.
However, the Russia government is expected to introduce a Russia-wide E-visa for Finnish passport holders in 2021.
