On January 1, 2005, passengers will be required to show their passports at ticket offices to purchase train tickets to the Kaliningrad region
On January 1, 2005, passengers will be required to show their passports at ticket offices to purchase train tickets to the Kaliningrad region, a Russian Railways press release said. The change is because a Russia-EU joint statement on transit to the Kaliningrad region from Russia is being implemented. Beginning on November 15, 2004, Russians must show their passports to purchase train tickets for after December 31, 2004. "If a passenger is denied transit, Russian Railways will inform him by telephone at the number on the receipt," the press release said. Russian Railways will refund the full value of the ticket at any ticket office equipped with the Express system to anyone denied transit. Russian citizens can travel without a passport if they have a Lithuanian visa, a Lithuanian residence permit, a Lithuanian A or B accreditation card, or a simplified transit document for multiple entries to Lithuania. Every year more than 600,000 Russians travel through Lithuania in trains, Russian Railways said. "Russian Railways transported more than 580,000 passengers through Lithuania from January 1 to November 8, 2004," Russian Railways said. "Over 290,000 of them went to Kaliningrad, and 289,000 left Kaliningrad."
