Russian President, Vladimir Putin, recently spoke of opening Russia up to tourism by introducing short term visa free entry or electronic visas.

The Football World Cup was held in Russia last year and fans could enter Russia with no visa (just their fan IDS) and Putin talked of the need for something like this to be done to increase tourism.

Currently cruise ship passengers can enter St Petersburg over 3 days without a visa but they can only leave the ship on a guided tour. If they want to leave the ship to have a walk around themselves or grab something to eat then they must obtain a full visa prior to departure.
