In the period from January to November last year, only 5.2 million foreign citizens entered Russia, which is 70% less than in the same period of 2019. Most often, the border of the Russian Federation was crossed by the residents of the CIS, while Europeans accounted for only 7.3%.

According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, cited by RIA Novosti, "citizens of other countries account for 12.4% of the migration flow".

44% of foreigners came to Russia for private purposes, and 24% arrived in Russia for work.

It's worth reminding that since March 27, against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, Russia has suspended international flights, excluding export, postal, ambulance flights, as well as government flights. They began to recover from August 2020.

Today, you can fly from Russia to Turkey, Tanzania, Switzerland, Egypt, UAE, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Serbia, South Korea, Japan, Cuba, Ethiopia, the Seychelles and some other countries. From January 27, flights will open with India, Vietnam, Finland and Qatar.
