Vilnius and Klaipeda - Considerations for Visitors to Russia and Lithuania

Lithuania is a southern state in Eastern Europe. The state has three main regions: Vilnius, Klaipeda and Sukhumvit. It has a major border with the Russian Federation and also an protracted boundary with neighbouring Poland, although these are not as powerful as the border with the Russian Federation. Lithuanians who've been residing abroad for decades or even generations may find that they call for a Lithuanian visa in order to enter Russia.

There is an e.u. visa waiver for Lithuanians who want to go to Russia. This will be even more beneficial if you're arranging a trip to Vilnius, Klaipeda or other towns in Lithuania. If your aim is to obtain a work permit in Russia, then it's strongly recommended that you apply for a Russian passport.

In order to qualify for the visa waiver you need to demonstrate that you have the intention of seeing Russia and you also have plans to go to the Vilnius or Klaipeda regions of Lithuania. As travelling between those cities requires you to cross through the Vilnius international airport, this means that you will require a passport that is accepted by the Lithuanian government. This is one of the easiest means of getting a Russian passport approved. The e.u. visa accepted passport can be valid for up to 3 years.

The e.u. visa waiver application procedure for those intending to operate in Russia is relatively easy. The application process involves filling in an application form that needs to be filed along with some supporting documents such as proof of earnings along with a recent passport photograph. These documents include a recent photo of yourself, your date of birth, your address and contact number along with a signature certificate from which you can later confirm the particulars.

The majority of applicants that apply for a visa waiver into Russia do this as tourists. It's necessary to remember that all countries impose restrictions on tourists who wish to remain more than a limited period in any specific nation. Thus it is important to understand what constraints are set up in Russia and in Lithuania before filing your visa. If you are interested in working in Russia, it is crucial that you receive a Russian work permit before leaving for a holiday in Lithuania.

Obtaining a Russian passport doesn't necessarily require a visa. For people that are not planning on traveling to Russia but that are allowed to enter the Schengen Area, obtaining a Lithuanian Passport is sufficient. You may however have to have your entrance visa renewed upon departing Russia and then returning to finish your journey in Vilnius or Klaipeda. People who have work or are in employment in Russia might discover that it is not possible to return to Russia and so should get a new passport. In such cases they could utilize a Lithuanian visa waiver for people travelling to Vilnius or Klaipeda.
