There are 3 types of Russian E-visa corresponding to 3 different regions of the country. Mexican nationals traveling to Russia can apply for any or all of these E-visas.
Applicants should note, however, that each type of Russian E-visa is specific to the region that the traveler will be visiting. For example, the St. Petersburg E-visa allows visitors from Mexico to enter the federal city of St. Petersburg and the surrounding Leningrad region only.
Mexican nationals who would like to visit more than one region within Russia will need to apply for a separate visa for each area they plan to visit.
The 3 different regions of Russia that travelers from Mexico can visit with a Russian E-visa are as follows:
- St. Petersburg and Leningrad
- Kaliningrad Oblast
- Russian Far-East territories
Mexican visitors with more than one of the above Russian E-visas should bear in mind that they cannot use them to travel between these regions by land; instead they must fly. If a traveler wishes to enter another part of Russia (even just passing through), they should apply for the relevant visa at a Russian embassy.
For the 3 E-visa regions of Russia, Mexican travelers must enter and exit through designated air and sea ports and specific land border checkpoints. It is important, therefore, to check which ports of entry/exit can be used when making travel plans.
