To visit Vladivostok, you may need to obtain a visa. Please check here whether you qualify for a visa-free entry to Russia.
If you do need a visa but you are a citizen of one of the following countries — good news! You can apply for a free electronic visa, allowing you to stay in Vladivostok for up to 8 days:
You can apply for an e-visa anytime within the 4 to 20-day period before the intended day of entry. The wait time for an e-visa approval is 4 days at maximum. To apply for an e-visa, you do not need to provide any hotel booking confirmations or invitations. Please get yourself familiar with all the rules of entry and apply for an e-visa here.
Be careful! The e-visa permits you to stay only within the Russian constituent entity that you entered — that is, if you entered Vladivostok, you can travel around Vladivostok and Primorye only. To continue travelling across the rest of Russia, you need a regular Russian visa. If you want to explore Russia beyond Vladivostok or if you are a citizen of a country not listed above, please contact a diplomatic mission or consular office of the Russian Federation in the country of your residence to learn about how to apply for a regular visa.
