Appointment booking for visa application

As of 15 June 2020 it is mandatory to book an appointment to apply for a visa at the Embassy. From 1 of March 2021 it is also possible to apply for a visa through VFS Global Visa Application Centers. Since there still is an entry ban to Sweden, only persons who are exempted from the entry ban can be issued visa at the moment. If you are not sure whether you belong to one of the exemptions you should contact the Embassy by e-mail visa.moscow@gov.se. Appointment is booked by calling +7 495 937-92-01 (Monday, Wednesday from 14:00 to 15:00). You can find more information on the exemptions here:
