I've postponed a moto-trip from France to Kirghizistan in 2020 and 2021 because of covid and it looks like the tension at the border between Ukrain and Russia is a bad news for 2022... I planned to cross over Russia on the way in and enter Ukrain from Russia on the way back...
I hope it will blow over, especialy for people over there.
Is there any news for overland entry in Russia?
None. What more embassy told me that I can only fly to Russia from either my own national airport, or if it doesnt have connection to Russia, then from nearest one which does. So, as a Slovak citizen, I cam exclusively fly to Russia from Vienna Schwechat airport, but not from eg Berlin, or Paris, or even Astana. Crossing via land? No chance, would apparently bring plague upon their house.
Why? Because beurocracy cool-aid never stops, thats why.
I can give only this information. Last summer I travelled one month with my wife from Vladivostok to Moscow by Trans-Siberian Railway. With a lot of stopps. At that time, the only one way to enter Russia ( at least from Germany ) was by Aeroflot and only from Frankfurt or Berlin ( maybe also from München, but I'm not sure ) direct to Moscow. It was possible ( for foreigners ) to take only 3 flights a week from Frankfurt to Moscow. The others flights ( called "charter" ) were only for the Russians or people with a special permit. On the return way, it was possible to take any plane. We stayed one night in Moscow and flew next evening to Vladivostok. At that time, it wasn't possible to cross the border by means of transport other than by plane. The first foregin tourists we meet almost at the end of our trip, probably in Nizhny Novgorod or in Vladimir and of course at the end in Moscow. Most of them were from Arab countries, a bit from Africa and probably also from India. Few people from the so-called "Western world". We received quite normal tourist visas. It took us maybe 10 or 15 minutes to submit the documents and we got our visas after two weeks of waiting.
I contacted a visum buro in The Netherlands yesterday and they could provide me with a 30 day tourist, or 60 day business, both double entry, visum. I would be travelling by motorbike. So I guess thats a yes
