Russia, Korea Make Visa Process Easier

The Korean and Russian governments simplified visa procedures for businesspeople from both countries starting Saturday. Russians visiting Korea for business are now able to enter the country with only a written invitation.

Until now Russian visitors had to present a round-trip flight ticket, a travel itinerary and other related documents to get a Korean visa. The new pact is also expected to ease the entry process of Korean business travelers into Russia.
