Information for Russian citizens


Entry into Germany is still possible for citizens of the Russian Federation who hold a valid visa.

Information on the currently valid requirements for issuing a visa can be found at:

https://germania.diplo.de/ru-de/service/05-VisaEinreise/kurzfristigeAufenthalt/-/1600140?openAccordionId=item-2434666-1-panel and https://germania.diplo.de/ru-ru/service/05-VisaEinreise/kurzfristigerAufenthalt/-/1224358

Exceptions only apply to Russian nationals who apply for a visa for a long-term stay - for example to seek employment or to study - and who might face non-reasonable risks when returning to Russia to apply for a visa at the diplomatic mission responsible for them. This could particularly be the case for human rights defenders, journalists, dissidents and conscientious objectors.

According to the so-called principle of territoriality, you cannot hand in an application for asylum abroad, but only in Germany. The Embassy cannot issue entry visas to apply for asylum.
