Recently, an Anti-Coronavirus staff member Sevara Ubaydullayeva told, whether Russia will accept Uzbeks who have not been vaccinated.

“Citizens of Uzbekistan who have not received the vaccine will be admitted to the country on the basis of the requirements of the Russian Federation for citizens of Uzbekistan. So, to date, persons who have antibodies to coronavirus infection after an illness, as well as those who have been vaccinated do not need to take a PCR test. Citizens who have not been vaccinated or do not have antibodies after an illness will be admitted to the Russian Federation only if the PCR result is negative twice within 5 days,” she said.
