Foreign participants will be provided visa-free entry to Russia

In accordance with the Order of the Government of Russia Federation from September 24, 2016, participants and organizers of some major social, cultural and sporting events will be able to visit our country without entry visa in the date of the event.

In the list of events was included the XIX World Festival of Youth and Students in 2017. It will be attended by 20,000 young people, half of whom are foreign citizens, residents of more than 150 countries world-wide.

Russia becomes the mistress of major international events. The practice of partial abolition or simplification of visa regime has become traditional in recent years for convenience and to create the most comfortable conditions of stay in our country.

The XIX World Festival of Youth and Students will take place from the 15th to the 21st October 2017 in Sochi. The day before the Moscow international student's parade will start the Festival, where will participate not only the Russian youth, but also the heads of all international delegations of the WFYS 2017.
