Now Visas For Up To 72-hour Stay In Russia Can Be Issued At Frontier

Starting from February 1, visas for less-than-72-hour stay in the Russian Federation can be issued straight on the border -- at Sheremetyevo (Moscow region) and Pulkovo (near St.Petersburg) airports and at the four checkpoints on the foreign borders of the Kaliningrad (Russia's westernmost tip) and Leningrad regions. A visa will cost 35 dollars and be glued into the tourist passport immediately on the border. In order to get a visa straight on the border a tourist willing to visit Russia has to apply for it 48 hours before the desired trip to a Russian tourist firm, or a hotel, and buy the tour, or book a hotel room. An entitled hotel, or a tourist firm, sends information on a tourist buying a tour, or reserving a hotel room, to the checkpoint through which the tourist is going to cross the border. Within 24 hours the tourist-related information will be verified. If everything is OK, the tourist will arrive in Russia and the visa will be glued into his passport on the border.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
