Is russia a safe country to travel to

Russia open borders


The European Union closed the entire airspace of its 27 countries to Russian aircraft on Sunday, following a steady stream of airspace closure announcements by member countries over the weekend.

The zone was expanded from 100 to 200 nautical miles from the Ukrainian border with Russia. EASA argues that the expanded zone now considers the “risk posed by the threat of missile launches to and from Ukraine.”

“We have guests traveling in late March and early April to Poland, but that is more than a month away. It’s impossible to say now how it will evolve. We are basically in wait-and-see mode,” Kozlowski said by email.

Tourists with short-term plans to visit Poland are advised to book accommodation in advance, “as some of the hotel infrastructure may be earmarked for those in need.”

“IATA is helping to facilitate the relevant and timely exchange of information with airlines from government and non-government sources to support airlines in planning their operations around the airspace closures in Ukraine and parts of Russia.”

Because Russia is a dangerous country

The richness of its history, which has been shaped over the centuries by Mongols, Vikings, czars, Bolsheviks and communists, a cultural and intellectual heritage as rich as its surface and breathtaking landscapes are just some of the trump cards with which Russia plays to seduce travelers.

The experience of touring a country that stretches the length and breadth of two continents is the perfect opportunity to live an unforgettable experience. However, as we have already mentioned, Russia is not free of risks, many of them a direct consequence of its peculiarities. Issues such as security or health care can be a problem if you travel without having taken out appropriate travel insurance for a destination that will require a significant budget. While it is true that your vacation investment will be protected by cancellation insurance, Russian regulations require that your policy must have extraordinary guarantees, so you should at least take out travel insurance with basic medical coverage.

It is important to keep in mind that the pandemic situation is changeable and the Russian authorities, as well as those of third countries, may change the provisions without prior notice.    Therefore, it is the traveler’s responsibility to check with the Russian embassy and countries of stopover before making travel decisions.

It is also advisable to verify the pandemic situation before making a decision to travel, as well as to have sufficient resources to face flight delays or cancellations (both for the eventuality of having to purchase new tickets, as well as to cover unforeseen expenses for lodging and food for a stay beyond the originally planned).

It is very important to have a comprehensive medical insurance that covers the necessary care and to verify that it is valid in the Russian Federation, since private medical service is very expensive, especially in cases of hospitalization. Remember that tourists are not entitled to free medical service.

Air traffic continues to move out of the severely affected areas. In addition to the border with Russia, Ukraine also neighbors Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova, as the map above illustrates.

The zone was expanded from 100 nautical miles to 200 nautical miles from the Ukrainian border with Russia. EFSA says the expanded zone now takes into account the “risk posed by the threat of missile launches to and from Ukraine.”

Gwen Kozlowski, a Florida-based travel consultant, Central European travel specialist and president of Exeter International travel agency, told CNN Travel on Feb. 24 that her agency has received inquiries from travelers with upcoming trips to Poland, but so far there have been no cancellations.

“We have guests traveling in late March and April to Poland, but that’s more than a month away. It’s impossible to say now how this will evolve. We are basically in standby mode,” Kozlowski said by e-mail.
