Russia eVisa for Saudi Arabian citizens
3 min read
Updated on Feb 29, 2024

Thinking about exploring Russia? We're here to make getting your visa from Saudi Arabia a lot simpler.

The thought of applying for a visa might seem complicated, but we’re here to simplify it for you. Our goal is to make the process clear and manageable, freeing you up to get excited about your trip.

Fill me in

We're here to help make your travel preparations as smooth as possible, so you can enjoy what really matters, like marveling at the splendor of the Winter Palace, soaking in the atmosphere of Moscow's Red Square, or exploring the historic towns of the Golden Ring. Let’s get your visit to Russia underway.

Do Saudi Arabian citizens need a Russia eVisa?

Yes, if you're from Saudi Arabia and dreaming of visiting Russia, you’ll need to apply for a Russia eVisa.

The eVisa makes things a lot simpler than getting a standard Russia Tourist Visa. No need for an invitation letter, hotel bookings, or any documents to show why you're heading to Russia.

One key thing to remember is the length of stay allowed with a Russia eVisa. Although it says 16 days, the day you arrive and the day you leave are included, meaning you really have 14 days to explore Russia.

For Saudis wishing to soak in more of Russia beyond 14 days, applying for a Russia Tourist Visa is a better choice, given it lets you extend your adventure and discover even more of what Russia has to offer.

Understanding the Russia Business Visa

If you're heading to Russia for anything business-related, like meetings, conferences, or looking into new business chances, then the Russia Business Visa is what you need. Keep in mind, though, this visa isn't for working or looking for jobs in Russia.

Getting a Russia Business Invitation Letter is a big part of your visa application. Depending on where you're from, you can get this letter from different places:

  • The General Directorate for Migration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

  • The Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

  • A visa directive from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

  • Or straight from the Russian company you're planning to visit.
