Lifting the restrictions on entering the Russian Federation for citizens of several countries.

In accordance with the order of the Government of the Russian Federation dated July 24, 2020 No. 1915-r restrictions on entering the territory of the Russian Federation are lifted for citizens of three countries – United Kingdom, Turkey and Tanzania. In particular, starting from 1 August 2020:

       - British citizens can enter the Russian Federation, but from the UK only through air checkpoints across the state border of the Russian Federation.

       - Foreign citizens, having a residence permit or another official document confirming their permanent residence in the UK, can enter the Russian Federation, but from the UK only through air checkpoints across the state border of the Russian Federation.

The Consular Section of the Embassy fully resumes issuing visas from 27 July 2020.

Please note, that foreign citizens can apply for a Russian visa in the UK, only if an official document from the Home Office confirming their permanent residence in the UK is provided.

Citizens from these countries, which are visa-exempt to enter the UK and not living in the UK, cannot apply for a visa to Russia.

Self-isolation for 14 days is not needed anymore. Nevertheless, entering the Russian Federation will be possible only upon presenting a negative COVID-19 test issued within 3 days before the date of departure.
