The European Union Commission says Russians wanting to enter the EU will face a lengthier application process and see fees rise from €35 to €80.
The Commission says this will remain in place as long as Moscow wages its war of aggression against Ukraine.
Over a million Russians have travelled to EU countries since the invasion of Ukraine in February.
EU Commission Vice-President, Margaritis Schinas, said Russia had “completely undermined” the trust on which the existing EU-Russia visa agreement was based.
EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, tweeted to say that the visa agreement should be suspended as there “can be no business as usual” with Russia.
