Do I require a Russian visa to enter Russia?

Citizens of certain countries do not require a regular tourist visa to enter Russia. For instance, passport holders from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Cuba, Israel, Peru, Venezuela and some others do not require a visa for short-term visits.

Besides, cruise ship and ferry passengers (arriving and departing by water) do not require a visa for visits under 72 hours. To find out more about visa-free shore excursions, please check out our “Visa-free and Tour Tickets” FAQ.
