Am I reading the aeroflot/russian advice properly.
Russian citizens DO NOT require a pre departure test but DO NEED to fill out a form, either paper on the plane or gosuslugi on the internet. Then they need to isolate and take a covid test within 3 days. Then, if negative they do NOT need to self isolate but must THEN ALSO take a 2nd covid test at least 24 hours after the first (in practice 2 days). I can't see if these tests also need to be uploaded to gosuslugi. My other half is Russian, but not very good with computers - hence some advice if available. I am trying to book in the next few days whilst everyone is being discouraged from travelling.
Kind Regards,
Les

There is a form - but it only works electronically if you have an account on GosUslugi.

You can print it from PDF - https://ru.usembassy.gov/wp-content/...sting-form.pdf

 As near as I can figure on the Sheremetovo Airport COVID-19 page, you seem not to need anything to arrive in Russia, and the requirements for testing seem to be as established by the airlines: https://www.svo.aero/ru/covid19/trav...id-19-pandemic


you can get a Sputnik V shot upon arrival, if you plan well.

Thanks Mel. I also discovered that her passport had expired and now have to get a certificate of return from the embassy so she can enter Russia. Then she will have to apply for a new international Russian passport in Moscow. I will buy a fully flexible ticket under the circumstances.

First steps taken today - 14/07/2021:-
1 A Russian National can get on an Aeroflot flight at Heathrow (to Moscow) and fill out all the corona virus stuff in a form on the plane.
2 A Russian National does not need a PCR test before flying to the Russian Federation direct on Aeroflot(at least from Heathrow). Foreigners do need a PCR test.
3 A Russian National will need to self isolate and get a PCR test inside of 72 hours of arrival. If negative they can come out isolation but will need another PCR test after at least a clear day to confirm this. This info per the wife.
4 A Russian National with an expired international passport must go to the embassy with 2 other Russian National witnesses (and their documentation) to support her application for a special document (sveditelstvo) which allows the Russian National to go to the Russian Federation. Application online. Print out forms. Take passport sized photograph(s?). Go for interview. They will call you when its ready for collection (should take a few working days - in our case 48 hours). The document is valid for 14 calendar days from the date of the application. The document is machine readable so you can be processed through passport control without the expired passport causing the computer system huge problems.
5. Book a ticket first using another passport (British) as I believe the Embassy like to see the flight itinerary and receipt (but its not on the document.) I expect the embassy just want to check the document is valid for the flight you will take.
And finally, things can change so don't rely on that bloke on the internet(me). Check for yourself.
Cheers,
Les

Hi, anyone had any experience flying with B.A. recently? The wife is flying on Saturday, Heathrow - Domodedovo with B.A. and as far as i am aware Russian Nationals don't require a pre-flight corona virus test to travel. Her friends have flown with Aeroflot and Air France recently and did not require tests to travel. Obviously foreign Nationals need a test, but B.A. state that "You must check your destinations entry requirements and, if required, show evidence of a negative covid-19 test." So i'm guessing the wife being Russian she does not need one? And that B.A. do not require tests simply to fly with them? Any thoughts, anyone? Cheers, Paul.
