It will be easier for Filipinos to visit Russia from 2021, as the Philippines was among 52 countries whose citizens will be allowed to participate in a pilot e-visa project, Miscow's mission in Manila said Thursday.

The e-visa was previously available to Filipinos, but only to St. Petersburg

Filipinos will be allowed for tourism, business, humanitarian and guest trips for up to 16 days from just 8 days previously.
