Определен порядок въезда в Россию иностранных участников ПМЭФ-2022

In order to apply for an entry visa into the Russian Federation, the invited individual must visit their local Consular Office of the Russian Federation. SPIEF 2022 invitation from the organizing committee is the basis for citizens of foreign countries to obtain the documents necessary to receive an expedited visa.  

Additionally this year, the participants are required to fill in SPIEF visa support card in the Roscongress personal account on the Forum’s website. 

All Forum participants that will be crossing a border into Russia, must indicate:

information about your arrival to Russia through your Roscongress personal account at least 72 hours before entrance; 

a valid passport and visa (if a visa is required for entry into the Russian Federation);

a document (in Russian or English) confirming a negative PCR test result for COVID-19 dated at most 48 hours before your arrival in Russia and a copy of your invitation letter to the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (or a letter about visa support).

"The simplified entrance procedure for participants and guests of the Forum significantly improves opportunities to develop business climate and business tourism. Both business community representatives as well as officials can enter the country for a period extending beyond the Forum dates, allowing them to use their time in Russia efficiently to hold meetings and participate in Forum events. Plus, they can visit other Russian regions where their companies may have offices. As of today, representatives from 77 countries have already confirmed their participation in the Forum," saidAnton Kobyakov, Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation and Executive Secretary of the SPIEF Organizing Committee.

The 25th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will take place 15–18 June 2022.  

You can apply to participate in the Forum until 6 June 2022.

Media representatives registration is open until 13 May 2022.
