Foreigners to need Russian visas to visit Crimea - ministry
MOSCOW. March 31 (Interfax) - Foreigners now need a Russian visa to visit Crimea "due to the reunification of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol with the Russian Federation," Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
Formalities for the departure from Crimea of foreigners who arrived as visa-exempt nationals before the region's incorporation into Russia are to be dealt with by a Russian Foreign Ministry mission in Simferopol, Crimea's administrative center, the ministry said in a statement.
