Foreigners arriving from countries not on this list (considered “green” countries) need to produce a document confirming a negative result from a PCR Covid-19 test in ENG/RU/Belarusian upon arrival, but no self-isolation is required. When flying from Green countries, the document confirming the test is checked before boarding.
