On strong medication being brought to Russia

Federal Law № 163-ФЗ “On amendments being made to the Article 50 of the Federal Law “On Medicine Circulation” introduces regulations for those foreign and Russian citizens who take certain strong medication with them to Russia for personal use. This refers to prescribed medicines which contain superpotent and/or toxic substances (controlled medicines).

The official list of such substances is approved by the Government of the Russian Federation.

Please note that if you are travelling to Russia with one of those medicines from the list you must have a prescription or a doctors letter with a notarised translation from English into Russian. The document should give the name of the patient, prescribed medicine and its quantity.

This rule does not apply to the healthcare products registered in Russia and sold over the counter.
