Hong Kong nationals can enter Russia visa free
Hong Kong nationals visiting Russia for purposes of tourism or business will not need a Russian visa to do so as of the 1 July 2009, according to news.gov.hk.
The Russian visa agreement allows Hong Kong nationals to enter for 14 days for business or tourism purposes, and a reciprocal agreement has been made for Russian nationals wishing to visit Hong Kong.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexei Kudrin confirmed with the visiting Financial Secretary John Tsang in Moscow on Tuesday that the agreement has been signed.
