In order to intensify measures to prevent terrorism, Russian law enforcement agencies strictly within the framework of the legislation of the Russian Federation conduct more thorough checks of foreign citizens entering the territory of the country. In this regard, delays in passport control are observed at checkpoints across the state border, including at a number of airports. The Russian side is taking comprehensive measures to resolve the situation as soon as possible. We hope for your understanding.

We emphasize that such steps are temporary and are taken regardless of the nationality of the incoming persons.

At the same time, please note that no changes have been made to the list of grounds for imposing a ban on entry into the Russian Federation, and there are no additional obstacles for foreign citizens to cross the state border, provided they have all the necessary documents.
