As stated the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov at a meeting with the current acting governor of the Kaliningrad Oblast Anton Alikhanov, electronic visas for foreign nationals wishing to visit Kaliningrad will be issued free of charge.

"The Kaliningrad Oblast has a status of the special economic zone and, to simplify travelling between the territories, the Foreign Ministry has made a proposal to the government to start issuing free electronic visas valid for 30 days and allowing 10-day stay in the country,” Lavrov said.

"This is quite a comfortable regime for those who want to come and run some joint cooperation projects here," he added.
