Participants in Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix will be granted free visas to enter Russia without any restrictions, as per the directive signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
The regulation will be in place for the period between 21 August and 31 October, which includes preparation for the event and the competition itself. The relaxed visa regime will apply to pilots, honorary guests, journalists and organisers of the race. The Formula 1 Organising Committee will be in charge of visa applications, which will be processed on a priority basis.
