Visiting Abkhazia from Russia
When visiting Abkhazia through the territory of the Russian Federation you must have at least a double-entry Russian visa (the first time you enter Russia on the way to Abkhazia and the second time you visit Russia on your way from Abkhazia back to your home country). The border operates 24/7. During high resort season (July–August) we recommend that you cross the border in the evening/night to avoid lines.
