Whether you are going to Russia for business or pleasure, it is required that citizens of Angola have a visa when arriving in Russia. The government of Russia started the e-Visa program in 2017 as a way to simplify the visa application process for foreign nationals.
Once the e-Visa program is completely open to Angolans, iVisa will release the online application. Until then, check out our Visa Checker Tool so you can view which online e-Visa applications are available to you.

Explain the Russian e-Visa Program more, please.
In August 2017, the Russian Federation began accepting visa applications online to help streamline their visa program for foreign nationals. This e-Visa program is currently open to the citizens of 53 countries looking to travel to specific regions of Russia such as the Far Eastern Federal District, Kaliningrad, Saint Petersburg, and Leningrad Oblast.
Once citizens of Angola are allowed to apply for an electronic visa for Russia, it will be released on iVisa’s website. Until then, we can help you figure out the best way to apply.
What’s the length of time I can stay in Russia while holding an e-Visa?
The e-Visa program currently allows visa holders to stay in Russia for up to 8 days from the date of entry in the country.
How long do I have to use my e-Visa once I get it?
The Russian e-Visa will expire after 30 days from the date of issuance. This means that you will need to enter Russia with the visa within 30 days from the issuance date or the visa will become invalid.
It is currently required to apply no less than 4 days before you travel to Russia and no more than 20 days before your intended arrival date.
What sort of reasons are acceptable for using an e-Visa to get into Russia?
Business, tourism, and humanitarian reasons are all valid reasons for Russian travel with an e-Visa.
Will I be allowed to visit other regions of Russia with a regional e-Visa?
It depends on which region you enter and what the specific requirements are for that region according to Russian federal law. Most visas, though, are only good to use for the specific region that you chose to travel to.
What is the limit on how many times I can enter Russia?
The Russian e-Visa is a single-entry visa. This means you are permitted entry into the Russian Federation one time. If you exit or leave Russia, you will not be allowed to re-enter the country without another visa.
