Russia Coronavirus - Travel Advice

Last updated: July 6, 2022

Russia and Coronavirus 

In July the Russian government ended all restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19, including the requirement to wear masks. However, it did not rule out re-introducing restrictive measures if the situation deteriorates.

Russia Covid-19 Entry Requirements 

From 9 April 2022, the Russian government reinstated regular airlines with 67 countries.

Non-Russian nationals must still produce a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours of their arrival in Russia. We recommend checking the latest requirements with the airline before planning a trip.

Additional requirements apply to foreigners who enter Russia from the Eurasian Economic Union countries (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan) and some CIS countries (Azerbaijan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) by air. Passengers arriving from these countries are required to receive a negative PCR COVID-19 test via the “Travelling without COVID-19” app and present the test result on the smartphone upon arrival. This does not apply to transit passengers traveling to Russia through the above countries.

Temporary COVID-related restrictions on entry and exit via Russia’s land borders remain in force for most countries.

All foreign passengers should complete a travel form prior to arriving in Russia.
