India has liberalised its visa rules for Russian citizens visiting India on business and tourism. The Embassy of India in Moscow has streamlined and liberalised its issuance of business and tourist visas with a view to further encourage business contacts and promote tourism between India and Russia. India and the Russian Federation already have in place a visa-free regime for diplomatic and official passport holders of both countries which facilitates regular official contact.

"We are now issuing multi-entry business visas valid for one year against six months single or double entry in the past and tourist visas valid for six months with multiple entries," said, Ajai Malhotra, India's Ambassador to Russia.

Both business and tourist visas are to be issued in three working days following the date of application against the previous minimum of ten working days. The new pattern is also being followed by the Consulate General of India in St Petersburg and Vladivostok.

Russian citizens can now apply for an Indian visa by a Russian company appointed by the Indian mission which can allow them to submit their applications even on weekends and holidays, when the Embassy is closed. Malhotra said these measures to facilitate the travel by Russian businessmen and tourists to India were actually implemented from June 12, Russia's National Day. According to him, the Indian Embassy in Moscow and the Consulates in St Petersburg and Vladivostok had issued about 110,000 visas to Russian citizens during 2010.
