Going to Russia as a citizen of Brunei Darussalam requires having a visa with you at all times. You can get a visa by applying at a visa application center or potentially online.
The online visa application process, or the e-Visa program for Russia, is constantly expanding and soon to include countries like Brunei Darussalam. It will be ready on the iVisa site as soon as Russia releases it.
The Russia e-Visa Program | Entry Limits, Restrictions, Documents, and More
Am I allowed to enter Crimea or Ukraine with a Russian e-Visa?
Technically, Crimea is still under the jurisdiction of Russia, but it is always important to clarify these distinctions with your visa application center.
Traveling to Ukraine requires foreign citizens to follow Ukraine’s visa policy. Use our Visa Checker Tool to see if you are required to get a visa for Ukraine.
What type of travel is allowed while holding an e-Visa for the Russian Federation?
Humanitarian work, educational study, touring the country, and conducting business are all of the acceptable ways to apply for an e-Visa. Some reasons may require additional information and documentation.
I need to enter Russia more than once. Is this allowed with an e-Visa?
Typically, the Russian e-Visa is a single entry visa. This means you are permitted entry in the Russian Federation one time. If you exit or leave Russia, you will not be allowed to reenter the country without another visa.
Sometimes you can get a double entry or multiple entry visa, but it will require more information from you.
What types of information and documentation is required to fill out an application online?
Have these prepared when you apply:
- Invitation Letter - You can request an invitation letter from your Russian tour operator or the hotel or hostel you plan to stay at while in the country. In many cases, an invitation letter from a natural or legal person who currently lives in Russia is also accepted and can be used for business, study, tourism, or personal reasons. If you are lodging in different regions of Russia, you will need an invitation letter from each host of your stay.
- International Health Insurance - This is to cover you in case of a medical emergency.
- Passport that is Valid - 6 months of validity are required; two pages for stamping
- Passport-Style Photo - Colored photos only, white background, ratio of 3.5 x 4.5
Please, explain the Russia e-Visa Program.
It started in 2017 and has slowly expanded to allow residents of over 50 countries to apply online for an electronic visa. e-Visas are attached digitally to your passport, and you will normally get a digital version of your visa in your email once it is approved.
Brunei Darussalam citizens will have access soon to the e-Visa program for the Russian Federation. Check back periodically.
How long do I have to explore Russia once I enter the country with an e-Visa?
From the time you enter Russia, you will have no more than 8 days to explore the region.
When will my e-Visa no longer work after I receive it?
The Russian e-Visa will expire after 30 days from the date of issuance. This means that you will need to enter Russia 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.
Be sure to plan your trip to Russia within this time frame so you do not make the mistake of allowing your visa to expire before you can use it.
