Renewal of issuance of all categories of visas

According to the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation №3003-R of 23.10.2021 "On Amendments to the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation №635-R of 16.03.2020", Sweden is added on the list of foreign states whose citizens and persons holding residence permits or other documents confirming their permanent residency right in those states may enter the Russian Federation from those states through air checkpoints of the Russian Federation.

Therefore Swedish citizens, third country nationals (TCN) and stateless persons carrying Swedish residence permit or another document confirming their permanent residency right in Sweden can apply for visas of all categories by appointment at the Consular section of the Embassy, the Consulate General in Gothenburg or the Official visa center of Russia in Sweden.

TCN and stateless persons permanently residing in Sweden will be required to produce their proof of permanent residency in Sweden as a prerequisite for the visa.

TCN permanently residing in Sweden and having a residence permit, provided that the state of their nationality has bilateral visa-free arrangements with the Russian Federation, may enter the country without any visa by direct flights. For those of them who intend to study or reside permanently in the Russian Federation, the relevant visas must be obtained through the normal procedure.

Please note also that TCN who are permanently residing in Sweden and who enter the Russian Federation on a visa or visa-free basis in accordance with bilateral agreements between the Russian Federation and their states of nationality need to present original documents confirming their permanent residency right when checking in and boarding the aircraft, and when crossing the state border of the Russian Federation. In the absence of such documents even with a visa it won’t be possible to enter the Russian Federation.
