The list of approved laboratories is available both in the mobile application and on the official website of the airline at

When passing the test, passenger must notify the clinic that he/she is travelling to Russia and must present his/her foreign passport.

Based on the test results, the application will generate a QR code that passengers are required to present at the border control point at the airport.

Information about the test results will be stored as a green QR code in the mobile application.

Passengers need to present this code at the check-in counter, as well as at border check points upon arrival in Russia.

In case there are some technical problems with their mobile devices while traveling, passengers are also required to have a paper copy of their PCR test with them.

The COVID-19 test must be taken within 72 hours prior to departure to Russia.
