Russia has prepared to reopen for tourism. The country will officially begin negotiations to reopen its borders for international tourism according to a new government decree.

Russia will no longer require foreigners to self-isolate for 14 days once the country reopens to international tourism.

Those arriving in Russia will need to present English or Russian-language proof. That they have tested negative for the coronavirus in the past 72 hours to be allowed entry.

Foreigners that arrive without test results have to submit a PCR test for Covid-19 within 72 hours of arrival. The decree states.

If the test comes back positive, visitors have to do self-isolate for 14 days.

Last Friday, deputy prime minister Tatiana Golikova said authorities will begin negotiations with other countries to restart international flights from July 15.

Reopening of flight routes would be based on the principle of reciprocity. Meaning Russia will need to strike an agreement with each government to resume air travel, Golikova said.
According to the Deputy Prime Minister, Tatyana Golikova, air travel will first resume to countries where the incidence of COVID-19 is no greater than 40 cases per hundred thousand people.

The average daily increase in the number of people infected. The rate of spread of the disease in such states should not exceed one per cent.

Russia grounded most international flights on March 27, with only a handful of select repatriation flights. And other government-approved flights bringing passengers to and from Russia over the past three months. Foreign citizens entry was barred entering the country since late March.

Russia has prepared to reopen but The European Union, which reopened its borders on July 1 to visitors from 15 countries, is still officially closed to Russians.

Russia has recorded over 738,787 confirmed cases of COVID-19 resulting in 11,597 deaths, according to John Hopkins University.
