If you've been dying to get back to the largest country in the world, we have some very good news for you. According to the Russian Government's Decree 365, American citizens and those from several other countries are now allowed to travel freely to and from Russia with proper visa documentation.
So, if you already have a valid Russian visa, you can obtain a negative PCR test and enter Russia within the next three days. If not, then it is possible to apply for a new tourist visa or whichever variety you desire, though administrative support for American visas may not be available right away.
In the meantime, why not look for some travel inspiration? Which of Russia's two capital cities will you visit: Moscow or St. Petersburg? Or perhaps someplace entirely different? What unusual places will you find? And it's also never a bad idea to brush up on your Russian.
Russian Life is a publication of a 30-year-young, award-winning publishing house that creates a bimonthly magazine, books, maps, and other products for Russophiles the world over.
