Moldova opens borders for Russian tourists from September
From September 1, Moldova updated the list of states whose citizens can enter the Republic in the conditions of the coronavirus pandemic.
As the press secretary of the country's border police Raisa Nowitski told, Russia has been excluded from the "red" zone of this list. This decision of the local authorities automatically lifts the ban for Russian tourists visiting the Republic.
“The new rules for crossing Moldovan border come into force on September 1. The ban on entering Moldova will be lifted, including for citizens of the Russian Federation,” explained Raisa Novitski earlier.
At the same time, the ban on air traffic between Moldova and Russia continues. In early August, Aeroflot canceled flights from Moscow to Chisinau, which were in the carrier's flight schedule.
The Vnukovo and Domodedovo September timetables include flights to Chisinau of Fly One and Air Moldova. Ticket prices start from 45 Euros. There are also flights with a change in Istanbul and the cheapest seats cost 383 Euros.
Since September, several other countries are planning to open for Russians. Starting September 2 the Polish government intends to exclude Russia from the list of countries with which air traffic is prohibited due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On August 24, the Armenian authorities decided to remove the ban on the arrival of persons who are not the citizens of the Republic, and since August 21, Kyrgyzstan has officially opened for Russians. Both countries are ready to resume flights to Russia in the first autumn month.
