KALININGRAD, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — Poland’s consulate general in Russia’s enclave of Kaliningrad as of February 1 will issue visas only to those tourists who have permanent residence permits on the territory of the Kaliningrad region, the consulate general’s secretariat told Itar-Tass.
“Tourists who are not residing in the Kaliningrad region will have to apply for visas to consular offices of their region – in Moscow, Irkutsk, St. Petersburg, etc,” the secretariat said.
At the same time the Polish diplomatic mission in Kaliningrad noted that the consulate general would issue tourists multiple visas under the rules established earlier.
“Multiple tourist visas will be also issued to those tourists who will apply personally, without mediation of the tourist agency, under the same rules as for a tourist agency. The first multiple visa will be issued for a period of twelve months,” the source said.
These changes are made to improve the quality of services offered to visa applicants, to simplify visa rules for tourists and to provide proper services to residents of Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad region who go on trip, go shopping to Poland or plan to visit the 2012 European Championships.
