A foreign citizen will be able to provide a certificate of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, passed no earlier than three days before arrival in the country, and documents on the presence of immunoglobulin G antibodies (if any).
If a person does not have such a document, he will be given three days to pass the corresponding test in Russia. Where the foreigner will have to be all this time is not specified in the document. The testing procedure will take place on a paid basis at the expense of the person who is trying to enter the country.
Similar rules will apply to Russian citizens who intend to return to their homeland.
