Data is sourced from Our World In Data, and risk levels are assessed and scored based on the CDC guidelines.

Local Guidelines

The federal government has delegated responsibility for the gradual relaxation of restrictions to the regional authorities. Proof of a recent negative PCR test, recovery, or vaccination with QR codes may be required to enter some establishments. Foreigners who have proof of full vaccination using a Russian vaccine may not be required to present a QR code. More restrictive guidance is in effect for high-risk regions. We recommend keeping up-to-date with official guidelines throughout your trip.
