Russians will be able to leave the country to close relatives living abroad and in need of care. Such a right will also be available to those who go abroad for treatment, as well as for work or study.

Foreigners will be able to enter Russia subject to similar conditions: if they are going to undergo treatment at Russian medical organizations or to take care of sick close relatives.

According to the decree, both Russians and foreigners will have to present documents confirming the purpose of the trip.

Earlier, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced the relaxation of restrictions on entry and exit from the country.
