Russia has resumed flights to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan and will also resume flights to South Korea from Sept. 27, according to a government decree. Citizens and permanent residents of these countries will be permitted to enter Russia and Russians will be able to enter these countries without restrictions as well.
Russia introduced entry restrictions for foreign nationals in late March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then, connections with Britain, Turkey, Tanzania, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and the Maldives have been restored.

Still most Russian nationals are barred from entering the European Union and the same rule applies to Europeans that want to visit Russia. The exceptions are Greece and Poland, which allow Russians to make two-week visits. Russia is the fourth highest coronavirus cases country with more than 1.1 million infections since the beginning of the pandemic.
