At Russian Girls Online, we understand that COVID-19 has a plethora of people eager to travel internationally. And you may be impatiently waiting on when you can see your Russian sweetheart. So as of September 16, can U.S. citizens travel to Russia? Below, we have everything you need to know.
What’s Happening in Russia
When it comes to international travel, the U.S. Embassy Moscow states U.S. citizens should not travel to Russia. As of September 16, the Russian Federation has reported over 1 million coronavirus cases. Though medical care has been adequately provided for serious cases, it may not be available everywhere in Russia.
On a more positive note, many restrictions that were used to slow the spread of the virus have been revoked. Businesses, government institutions and transportation are operating as normal. This, in turn, is definitely helping Russia get its economy back in order. Food is not scarce in grocery stores and schools are back to operating as normal.
Entry to and Exit from Russia
Finally, we get to the question that is on everyone’s mind: can U.S. citizens travel to Russia? As of September 16, U.S. citizens are not permitted to travel to Russia. If you are a qualified specialist or have a relative in Russia that needs medical attention, you are allowed to come to Russia. However, you would have to provide a negative COVID-19 test (PCR and/or serology).
At the airport, there are health screening procedures that you would have to abide by, just like in the United States. If you happen to make it over to Russia during this time, you will have to self-quarantine. Of course, this is only necessary if you test positive for COVID-19. And the good news is that the Russian Federation no longer requires all travelers to quarantine for 14 days after arrival to Russia.
In brief, you will not be able to travel to Russia as of September 16. In spite of this information, you can still make the most of your online dating with video chat, voice chat and instant messaging. Russian Girls Online offers all of these handy online tools for you so you don’t skip a beat, even when the world is in shambles.
