Blanket visa allows you to spend 3 days in St Petersburg without applying for a regular visa. You will be able to pass the customs without any documents except your valid passport, a migration card that you will be given on board and a Sputnik tour ticket.
This works for cruise passengers who travel with a group of at least two people.
All the passengers should stay on the ship over night and have a tour program for the day.
Please, make sure to order your blanket visa at least one week in advance.

The "Blanket Visa" is a very easy and smart way to get the required Visa for Cruise Passengers. Simply put it is a piece of paper that Sputnik sends you by email. You take this paper with your passport and walk through Immigration. It is very simple and it took us only one minute to clear Immigration and we met our Guide right outside on the embankment. We were on Azamara Journey at the "English Embankment" so we were right in the city.
The Visa is good for 72 hours which makes a three day stay in St. Petersburg perfect.
Do not be put off by the cruise lines saying you need to take their Tours. This is not correct. Sputnik can set you up with the required Visa on line and your Tour will be better with Sputnik than with a busload of tourists being carted around in a hurry.
