Multiple-entry private visas to close relatives

According to the last amendments to the visa regulations from 1 September 2021 it is possible to apply for a multiple-entry private visa to close relatives of Russian nationals for up to 1 year, regardless of the reciprocity basis between Russia and other countries, including the UK.

As previously, the visa is issued on the ground of a written application of the Russian relative with a choice of single/double-entry visa up to three months and a new option of multiple-entry visa up to one year. The one-year visa also provides for that there is no limit of stay during this period of time as it is stipulated in other long-term visas (90 days within the period of 180 days).

At the same time, one should bear in mind that there is a longer processing time for a one-year visa – 10 working days.
