In accordance with the governmental decree No. 963-p dated 14 April 2021, citizens and permanent residents of “green listed” countries may enter Russia by direct flights from any green listed country.
The changes took effect on 16 April 2021.
What are the changes?
1. Previously, such nationals were allowed to enter only by direct flights from the country of their citizenship or permanent residence. Now they may enter by flights originating from any green-listed country.
2. Citizens and permanent residents of Belarus may enter Russia by flights from Belarus as well as by flights from green-listed countries.
Foreigners from green-listed countries with suspended or limited direct flights to Russia (currently the UK, Turkey and Tanzania) may benefit from the change by taking a flight to Russia from another green-listed country.
Kindly pay attention that the “green list” is a formal list approved by the Russian government, which currently includes 29 countries. Belarus is not on the list but its citizens and permanent residents enjoy the same right to enter Russia by air flights.Back to list
