Russia was one of the first countries to open its borders to foreign visitors after the global outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
Visitors of more than 50 countries can visit Russia now as tourists. Please check the website of a Russian Embassy/Consulate located in your country to check for more details and see if your country is on the list of «opened borders» countries.
Currently in Russia there are special regulations in place to visit museums, theatres and concert venues. Most of them require a local QR-code confirming an individual vaccination status. Most venues accept only QR-codes issued by Russian authorised bodies. As an alternative document to a Russian QR-code, visitors can present a valid PCR test results or antibodies certificate.
Some venues and museums accept foreign vaccination certificates but there are only few of them.
When we design a touring itinerary, we take into account and advise on current entry requirements of each particular museum.
