Visa Validity - 6 Months Valid - 90 Day Stay - Means What ?

If i get a via issued today for example and its valid for six months from today can i enter the country in question on its last day of validity and stay for the full 90 days even though its no longer valid ?

Or does the 90 days have to be within the 6 month validity ?

I suppose this applies to all counties. I'm looking at getting some of my Visas in the UK to save some hassle on route. Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia to be specific. I can do without a ride to the embassies in Cairo and all that traffic. Either way, i'd like to know the answer to the question. THANKS !!!

My experience in the region you're travelling to is that the validity refers to the date you have to enter by, not the date you have to leave by.

So yes, you can enter a country on the last day the visa is valid and then stay for the duration of the visa. Not sure I'd cut it that fine personally, but technically it's fine.

I cannot comment on those African countries (I have only been countries that don't require visas or they are bought on entry - other than Libya, but that was long ago and probably not relevant these days!).

That certainly that does not apply with Russia visas.

Visa are a right to be in the country during the period of it's validity. Entry is only one aspect.
That means the holder has the right to be in the country only during those dates. He should not be in the country after the final date.

Other visa conditions must also fit in with that primary validity (like single entry, 7 days, 90 days, whatever, etc).

So, even if you enter a country late in the visa validity dates you must still be out at the end, irrespective of whether you have had your "90 days worth" or not.
