Russian tourism can mark the end of the “covid era”, which lasted two half years. From Friday, October 21, Rospotrebnadzor officially canceled the mandatory PCR test for covid for unvaccinated citizens of the Russian Federation entering or returning from abroad.
This resolution, signed by Anna Popova, the “chief for covid” of the main department, published on the official Internet portal of legal information. It reads as follows: “I decide to amend the resolution of the Chief State Sanitary Doctor of the Russian Federation dated March 18, 2020 No. 7 “On ensuring the isolation regime in order to prevent the spread of COVID-2019” in accordance with the annex to this resolution. This Resolution shall enter into force on the day following the day of its official publication. Recall that earlier every unvaccinated tourist had to take a PCR test within three days of arrival, which, in the case of paid delivery, added quite a decent amount per family to a foreign trip. The rule did not apply to vaccinated and recovered patients.
At the same time, one anti-COVID measure will remain. Tourists will still have to fill out an arrival questionnaire before arriving in the country.
