From December 1, Cyprus introduces a visa fee for obtaining a national visa for Russians, reports the Association of Tour Operators.
In September, after the European Union suspended the visa facilitation agreement with the Russian Federation, the fee for Russians was increased from €35 to €80 for adults and from €35 to €40 for children aged 6 to 12. .
Based on the decision of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Cyprus, from December 1, the country also introduces an appropriate tariff. Its amount will be the same as for the rest of the EU countries.
In October, Germany tightened visa conditions for Russians. Now, when submitting documents, citizens of the Russian Federation must provide an account statement from a credit institution operating in the EU. Previously, a certificate from a Russian bank or a branch of a European bank operating in the Russian Federation was sufficient.
Previously, several countries officially stopped issuing Schengen visas to Russian citizens, including Finland, the Netherlands, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Belgium, Slovakia, Denmark, and the Czech Republic.
