Hey,

From what we've heard and seen over the last couple of months, only Russians and some citizens of Georgia, Azerbaijan or Armenia are able to cross by land. And even this is not 100% sure.

Official Russian Tourism Agency in Tbilisi told us in July 2021 if we were crazy trying to travel to Russia --or anywhere-- during this pandemic. Their opinion was Russia wouldn't open their borders for foreigners in a long, long time.

According to my info Kremlin now works on bilateral vax certificate recognition and within few months RUS should re-open for double vaxxed.

I just received official info from Russian embassy in Bratislava. Starting today Russia is once again issuing tourism visas. Please check info at your national embassy, consulate and visa center to see if same happens in your country, but if restriction is lifted for Slovakia its most likely lifted for entire EU.

Additional info: Russia requires PCR test no older than 72 hours for entrance. Russia does not recognize EU COVID pass, or vaccination certificate in general. Per my info mutual recognition between EU and RF of vaccine certificates is in works so hopefully this can change soon.
