Dear Attendees,

If you are a resident of one of these countries, you will need to get a visa to attend JUG Ru Group events as a speaker or an attendee.

In order to get an e-visa to Saint Petersburg, please, complete the application form on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website via the link. It is better to choose the “business” type of visa. See the list of the rules here. The visa is free.

You need to apply for a visa not earlier than 20 days and not later than 4 for days before coming to Russia (Saint Petersburg). It takes just 4 days after the date of your application to receive the visa. You will get it via email — do not forget to take the printed version with you.

E-visa allows you to stay in Saint Petersburg for 8 days including the date of arrival. Remember that this document can be used only once during the 30 day period after you get it.

You can get to Saint Petersburg using your e-visa by:

  • direct flight from your country, or using indirect flights with transfer in any country;
  • ferry or ship not coming ashore till you reach Saint Petersburg;
  • bus that goes from any European country with no transit in Russia.

*Please note that you should have insurance that covers all Russian regions. It might be asked for at Pass Control.
