Visa support

Information on Visas is still to be clarified due to the Covid situation

Most of the foreign participants of the ESN 2022 event should obtain a visa to enter the Russian Federation. Visa support letters will be provided for all registered delegates and accompanying persons after paying the first instalment.

Online application for an electronic visa to St. Petersburg is not available due to the current Covid-19 situation in the world.

Please note: Visa support letters will be issued only for delegates whose registration has been completed.

Invitation letters are for visa purposes only, and do not imply any financial commitment from the organizers. All expenses involved with attending the event, including airfare, transportation, lodging, meals, insurance and conference entry fees, will be the responsibility of the attendee.

It is the responsibility of the participant to make the visa application early. Please be prepared and find out about processing time.

Visa is not required for citizens of visa-free countries entering Russia for a specific period (from 30 to 90 days) and for a specific purpose (tourism, business, etc.) with some restrictions. The duration of their stay in Russia is limited. The list of countries that have a visa-free regime with Russia is regularly changed:
