72-hour visa information

(please, read this information carefully)

The 72-hour visa is given to citizens of Schengen countries, UK and Japan. This visa is valid only for Kaliningrad region.


To apply for the 72-hour visa we need the following:
1) scan copy of your passport (you must have at least 3 months left before your passport expires)
2) working address, name of the company, position, phone number
3) home address, phone number
4) hotel reservation (a copy)
5) on arrival you have to hand in a 3*4 cm color photo

Visa cost and payment

After we receive your documents, we’ll send you the account number for the payment. It takes 4-5 days to make the visa starting from the moment we have all the documents and payment on hand.

The visa costs 70 Euro per person. The visa is made only after the payment has been confirmed.

If you don’t have much time left you can pay via Western Union or PayPal as a bank transfer takes 3-4 days. Please, send us a copy of the payment receipt. Bank transfer fees are at your expense. European banks often split the fee between the sender and the recipient, thus, we don’t receive the whole payment. Please, make sure when you make the payment, that you take the fee fully to your expense.
