All third-country nationals and stateless persons have to arrive in the Russian Federation and leave the Russian Federation through multilateral checkpoints used for international flights

The norms of the Russian legislation “On the state border of the Russian Federation” establish that foreign citizens and stateless persons have the right to enter the Russian Federation only through the established checkpoints on the state border with the obligatory passage of border control.

There are no checkpoints for international traffic on the roads and rail roads through the Russian-Belarusian section of the state border of the Russian Federation and there are no border controls for persons and/or vehicles.

According to the explanations of the FSB in Russia on the procedure for crossing the state border between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus, before the final settlement of this issue, all third-country nationals and stateless persons, regardless whether they have a visa, permanent or temporary residence permit in Russia or in Belarus may not cross the Russian-Belarusian state border using rail or road transport.  It will be a violation of the established rules about crossing the state border of the Russian Federation.

From May 2017, it became possible for citizens of third countries to cross the Russian-Belarusian state border using direct air flights between the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation. At the same time, in relation to foreign citizens and stateless persons arriving from the Republic of Belarus and departing in the opposite direction, border controls are carried out at Russian airports.

At the same time, one should keep in mind that foreign citizens and stateless persons traveling by air in transit through the territory of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Belarus still have to apply for a Russian transit visa.

All categories of third-country nationals and stateless persons in accordance with international norms and the national legislation of the Russian Federation may arrive in the Russian Federation and leave the Russian Federation through multilateral (bilateral) checkpoints used for international flights.
