I am planning to visit Northern Poland and then Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. I am thinking of going into the Russian state of Kaliningrad as well. I've read that compared to Russia proper it is easier to get a three day tourist visa for Kaliningrad. You don't need an invitation like for main land Russia.

I have a German passport and will leave from Berlin in the next few days. Is it possible to get a Kaliningrad visa in Gdansk or Vilnius in a day?

From quick search, I found out, that (as EU citizen) you can get 72-hours visa to Kaliningrad at the border.

You can get 72 hours visa only at 3 points:
- Kaliningrad airport, if you arrive by plane
- Russian-Polish border (Bagrationovsk and Mamonovo).

Another way is to get your visa in Poland is in consulate in Warsaw, but that may take longer.

If you are departing from Berlin, you can use the Mamonovo post to get this visa right there, with no need to wait, as @Tschareck said. There is new road opened, more information is in our older question here: "Is it difficult to do a car border crossing in Kaliningrad Oblast?"
