Turkish citizens will be able to obtain an easy visa from Russia only with hotel reservations.
Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed the decree that allows Turkish citizens to obtain multiple-entry tourist visas for up to 6 months based solely on hotel or other accommodation reservations.
The same opportunity was provided to the citizens of Bahrain, Brunei, India, Indonesia, Iran, Cambodia, China, North Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Malaysia, Mexico, Myanmar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Thailand and the Philippines.
Accordingly, citizens of 19 countries will be able to obtain a 6-month multiple-entry Russian visa only with their reservations at registered Russian hotels. The decision, published on the official website of the Russian government, will take effect from March 5.
