From June 10, the Azerbaijani authorities will allow citizens of the Russian Federation to fly into the country, including for tourist purposes, the country's tourism council said.

"To cross the border, passengers over 18 years will need a document confirming vaccination against COVID-19 or recovery after it, as well as a certificate of a negative coronavirus test made no earlier than 72 hours before departure," the message says.

Russians with tickets for the matches of the European Football Championship held in Baku will also be able to come to Azerbaijan subject to the conditions of entry.

The decision on the gradual abolition of special permits for visiting Azerbaijan by citizens of a number of states was made by the operational headquarters under the Cabinet of Ministers. At the first stage, only citizens of Russia and Turkey will be able to freely fly to Azerbaijan.

Also from June 10, mosques and other religious objects should open, large shopping centers will resume work, but children's entertainment centers and cinemas located in them will remain closed. At the same time, it is planned to allow visits to beaches and sports and recreation facilities. Public events will remain banned until August 1.
