Travelers who have received the Sputnik-V or Sputnik Light 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.
