The decision was made following citizens’ requests.
The restrictions on entry/exit for Russia, introduced to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus have been relaxed. Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a directive to this effect.
Russian citizens can leave the country to attend to close relatives abroad who need care. The same applies to those who need to go abroad for medical treatment as well as to work or study.
Foreign nationals can enter Russia under similar conditions; if they intend to undergo treatment in a Russian medical facility or to take care of close relatives that are sick.
Speaking at the 8 June meeting of the Presidium of the Coordination Council to control the incidence of novel coronavirus infection, Mikhail Mishustin said that the decision to amend the existing entry/exit restrictions was made after reviewing citizens’ requests to the Government.
