This article contains provisions from the Regulations related to the import of animals in the Russian Federation.

Animals in quarantine are screened and diagnosed for:

Minks: Aleutian disease of mink

Cats: dermatophytosis.

Those animals which have not been vaccinated over the last 12 months are vaccinated not later than 20 days before their transportation from the following diseases:

For all carnivores: rabies. Import, transit or movement of animals that have not been vaccinated against rabies is prohibited.

For foxes and polar foxes: canine distemper virus

For minks and ferrets: canine distemper virus, virus enteritis, pasteurellosis

For nutrias: pasteurellosis

For dogs: canine distemper virus, hepatitis, virus enteritis, parvoviral and adenoviral infections, leptospirosis

Up to two pet cats or dogs can be imported without import licence or quarantine, provided they have their international passports with a record of clinical examination made not earlier than 5 days before transportation.

There is no need to obtain a special veterinary certificate for animals transported to a third country through the territory of the Russian Federation.

Every animal’s passport should contain records about vaccinations made in full compliance with these Regulations and prove that every successive vaccination was done before the expiration of the previous vaccination.

A physical examination by a veterinarian should be made over a 5-day period before transportation and the passport should contain a record that gives the right to transport the animal in the next 120 days, provided that the latest vaccination is effective throughout.

Hopefully there will be some news very soon about if to quarantine when visiting Russia this July, I'm really looking forward to going, and hopefully one day live there and follow where my ancestors came from.

Anyone have insight as to if Russia will lift the 14 day quarantine requirement if/when they restart direct flights from UK to Russia from 2nd June 2021?

Fingers crossed that the quarantine will be lifted for those visiting Russia this summer!

Fingers crossed for the lifting of the flight ban soon so we can study and work in Russia as soon as possible

Do you have a list, in English, of the medicines which need a notarised prescription to take them into Russia please?

Just got back from Russia. Had a fantastic time. St Petersburg is by far the best city I have ever visited (and I've been to a lot). Great people. great history and the buildings are out of this world. Never once felt intimidated, even roaming the back street bars with my wife. We felt welcome in every bar and restaurant - and the food was brilliant. Would recommend anyone to go and see this clean beautiful city. Just wish the visa application was a bit easier but this will not stop us visiting again.

I’m sick of hearing the lies said against Russia in our news. Please accept this as a kind of apology from ordinary Brits for our governments stupidity and dishonesty, including the recent underhand moves. Finally after all these years our thanks for being our ally in defeating the Nazis all those years ago. Best regards, Stewart , Liverpool.
