The Consular Section
The Government of the Russian Federation has issued decree (N 773 of 02.10.2009) on participation of Russia in APEC Business Travel Card (ABTC) Scheme under certain conditions, which can be regarded as átransitional membershipâ. Under the decree, which comes into force since 12-th April, 2010 , the ABTC holders will enjoy special fast-track entry and exit lanes at international airports and seaports. Although the ABTC cardholder is still to apply for entry visa, unless otherwise exempt under international agreements of the Russian Federation , our Embassy (Consulate General) will process such visa applications in a priority mode, including same day visa processing.
Any ABTC cardholder applying a visa should have an invitation from some organization in Russia , completed application form, one photo and passport.
Please notice that on arrival to Russia the ABTC cardholder should show his passport with visa and the card to pass through the lanes "For APEC Business Travel Card holders" or "For ABTC holders", which can be the same as "For Diplomatic passport holders".
