While planning their trip, Swedish citizens should keep a few things in mind:
- The Russian eVisa for Swedes is valid for a total of 30 days after approval.
- Holders of a Russian eVisa are allowed to stay in the Russian Federation for a maximum of 8 days.
- The Russian eVisa for Swedish citizens can be used for tourism, humanitarian purposes, and business.
- Swedish nationals are allowed to visit more than one region. However, currently, each region requires its own separate eVisa application. For example, if travelers wish to visit all three regions, they will need to complete three different applications.
Finally, and according to Russia’s visa policy, all visitors entering the country with an electronic visa should note that there are designated entry and exit ports for each specific region. There are 29 approved border checkpoints that include airports, seaports, land crossings, and even pedestrian checkpoints.
However, this situation will change soon since the Russian government recently announced that Swedish visitors, along with several other nationals, will be eligible to obtain a unified visa to Russia, which will eliminate the region-based criteria.
