Regarding documents of foreign citizens entering Russia for the purpose of medical treatment
According to the information of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, foreign citizens arriving in the Russian Federation for the purposes of medical treatment can receive an ordinary medical visa. At the same time, the accompanying family member of a foreign citizen will be issued the same visa.
Such visa will help simplify as much as possible the procedure for a foreign citizen entering for medical treatment. Also, with such a medical visa there is no need to arrange for a foreign citizen's security check, fingerprinting and other procedures.
This medical visa will be issued to foreign citizens for up to 1 year. In order to obtain such visa it will be required to provide all necessary medical papers confirming that the foreign citizen is going to Russia for the purposes of medical treatment.
