ALRUD, a confident Russian leader in labour and employment law.
The ban on foreign nationals entering Russia has been extended indefinitely.

On 29 April 2020, the Russian Government extended the temporary restriction of entry into the country for foreign nationals and stateless persons for an indefinite period. The ban was previously valid from 18 March until 1 May 2020. Some categories of individuals (e.g. individuals with diplomatic, official or ordinary private visas issued in connection with the death of a close relative, etc.) are exempt from the entry restriction.
