Regarding restrictions upon entry into Russia for foreign visitors

Dear applicants,

Tax evasion during the period of stay of a foreign national in the Russian Federation is considered as ground for denying him entry into the Russian Federation in the future according to article 27 part 1 of the Federal Law No. 114 "On the Procedure for Departure from the Russian Federation and Entry into the Russian Federation" (August 15th, 1996).

The mentioned provision also applies to cases where a foreign national fails to fulfill their obligation to pay necessary custom duties and taxes within the established time frame, including violations of the conditions for temporary imports of vehicles for personal use into the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union.

The Federal Customs Service of Russia has launched an informational service that allows users to check outstanding customs charges and decisions taken by customs authorities to not grant entry into the Russian Federation.

The informational service is available to the public through the following link:
