for citizens of several countries it is possible to apply for a free e-Visa for the Russian region of Kaliningrad (certain restrictions apply). However most of the flights to Khrabrovo airport in Kaliningrad originate in Moscow.
It is possible to do a TWOV (transit without visa) at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow, if the following three Timatic conditions are met:
- Confirmed onward ticket to a third country
- Onward flight within 24h
- Onward flight from the same terminal/terminal complex
Sheremetyevo airport currently has four terminals, whereas B is separated and solely used for domestic flights, while the Southern complex of D-E-F is mostly used for international flights. The majority of the Moscow-Kaliningrad flights depart from terminal B for which a Russina visa would be needed, since one needs to go landside to reach this part of the airport. However, Rossiya airlines operates two daily flights to Khrabrovo (FV6161 and FV6163) from terminal D, so passengers arriving from international flights could remain airside.
So my question is the following: Having an e-Visa for Kaliningrad, is a TWOV at SVO possible without having a visa for the rest of Russia?
