This applies to students coming from countries that already have air traffic with Russia.

After entering the country foreign students should stay self-isolated until they receive the results of a laboratory test for coronavirus infection. And then, after obtaining two negative test results foreign citizens can start studying.

Medical documents confirming a negative result for COVID-19 should be submitted in Russian or English.
