Safety and Security
Do not travel.
We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time, including to Russia. On 16 March, the Russian government announced a temporary restriction on entry into Russia for foreigners. Russia has implemented enhanced screening procedures and entry restrictions in response to the COVID−19 outbreak. These include border closures, flight cancellations, medical checks at international border checkpoints and a mandatory 14 day quarantine for travellers who are still permitted to enter Russia. If you’re in Russia and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible as departure options are becoming limited. If you can’t or don’t want to leave, you should follow the advice of local authorities; take care to minimise your risk of exposure to COVID-19; stay in touch with family and friends so they know you are safe; and ensure you have arrangements in place for a possible extended stay. (see Travel).
We now advise you to:
Do not travel to Russia.
