Health Precautions

Obligatory Vaccination and Other Recommendations
It is recommended that everyone 16 years of age and older should get fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before travel and present, if necessary, evidence of COVID-19 vaccination at the border. The updated information on all health entry requirements as well as on routine and recommended vaccines for Russia are provided on the dedicated pages on TravelHealthPro and CDC websites.
While there are no official requirements for vaccination, the following are strongly recommended: tetanus, diphtheria, rabies, chickenpox, measles, hepatitis A and B, influenza and poliomyelitis. When visiting the temperate regions of Russia, vaccination against tick-borne encephalitis is recommended. In rural areas, vaccination against Japanese encephalitis is advised. Visitors staying more than three months must produce a certificate of HIV-negative status (see this with the Embassy). Because counterfeiting of medicines has increased so much in Russia, travellers are advised to take with them the medicines they need for their state of health or for treatment.
