Those foreign citizens, who use e-visa, can visit the region if they arrive to Russia via Chrabrovo airport, maritime entry points in Kaliningrad region, Baltiysk or Svetloe, motor vehicle crossing points in Bagrationovsk, Gusev, Mamonovo (Grzechotki and Gronowo), Morskoe, Pogranichny, Sovetsk and Chernyshevskoye and via rail crossing points Mamonovo and Sovetsk too.
