E-Visas issued by the Russian Federation may not be accepted for travel if there is a mismatch between your passport and e-Visa information.

Before the flight, please make sure you check the following information on your e-Visa:

  • Your passport number is correct
  • Your full name is populated (including all your given names) and there are no misspellings
  • Only Latin alphabet characters are used, special national characters (such as Ñ, É, Ü or Ç) are not accepted
  • Your date of birth is correct

We advise you to check the “machine-readable line” of your passport that you will find at the bottom of the same page and make sure all details are identical to the data on your e-Visa, including your name and passport number. For example, if the names in the visual area of the passport are "Séo Türre" then you are required to use names from the machine-readable line "Seo Tuerre".



Remember, your e-Visa will be only accepted for travel if your name is completely identical to the one in the “machine-readable line” of your passport.
