Hi,
I am looking for travel advice from anyone with experience of travelling to Russia with a child having both Russian and UK passports.

We will be travelling to Moscow next week with our 21 month old daughter.

We plan for her to travel out on her Russian passport and return on her UK passport so do not have a visa in her UK passport.

How should we handle insurance for her?
My wife thinks that there are some rules that if you have Russia based insurance it cannot be used in 100km of where you registered BUT our daughter is not registered in Russia - this is her first visit.

My wife also thinks that if we insure her as a UK citizen it will be invalid because we don't have a Visa in her UK passport.

Any advice? It is not easy to find anything online about this.
My wife even called Russian insurance company and they did not help / know.

Thanks in advance.

Surely your daughter with a russian passport is registered with the London Embassy. Her Russian passport entitles her to russian healthcare (propiska does not matter AFAIK). So what if she is registered not in Russia but at the London Embassy? My family all with dual passports (RUS/GBR) never take out medical insurance. They have never needed to. even me, with just a tourist visa and UK passport have never in the past needed to take out medical insurance. It might have changed for me, the only single national in my family, but I am not really that worried about it. Per the below info I do not need insurance...

UK citizens (GBR Passport) do NOT need travel insurance. Schengen Citizens do. Per the Embassy.
