Vaccinations and vaccinated travel

Travelers who present a valid certificate for full vaccination against COVID-19, issued in selected countries, are permitted to travel and are exempt from undergoing 14-day isolation requirements. Vaccinated travelers will be tested on arrival and must self-isolate for 24 hours or until a negative result is confirmed on the test taken on arrival.
Travelers who have recovered from COVID-19 and have received at least a single dose of the vaccine, not more than 180 days before departure, are permitted to travel and are exempt from undergoing 14-day isolation requirements.
Travelers who have received the Sputnik vaccine are also required to undergo additional serologic and PCR testing on arrival. Travelers will undergo quarantine until a positive serologic test and negative PCR test results are confirmed. Those testing negative on the serologic test are required to isolate for 14 days with the option to reduce this period by taking a supervised rapid antigen testing from the seventh day.
The final dose must have been administered at least 14 days and not more than 180 days before departure. Exemptions also apply to those who have received a vaccine booster after a full course of vaccination, if administered at least 14 days before departure.

Those who have recently recovered from COVID-19 must self-isolate until a second test is confirmed negative taken on the third day of the isolation period. This will require proof of a positive PCR test result, taken at least 8 days before and not older than 190 days of departure, or a recovery certificate.
