Extended suspension of flights from the UK to Russia
Due to the wide spread of the new variant of coronavirus across the UK and the current national lockdown the Government of the Russian Federation has taken the decision to extend the suspension of flights from the UK to Russia until 23 h 59 min of 1 February 2021.
Meanwhile, the Russian Visa Application Center is still open. Applying for visa is possible, but going to Russia will not be possible until the date mentioned above. Please, bear in mind before planning your trip that resuming of flights may be postponed depending on COVID situation in the UK. In this regard, no visa extension or visa fee compensation is provided by the law.
Restrictions for entering the Russian Federation for British citizens and foreign nationals living in the UK with a residence document provide their travel to Russia only by direct flight from the UK. No transit flights are allowed, unless the person is subject to Government exceptions.
