Russian flag carrier Aeroflot will demand foreign visitors provide negative Covid-19 test BEFORE flying to Russia

You didn't think they were going to make it too easy, did you? Russia's national airline has decided that if it's going to ferry international passengers into the country, they'll have to prove they are coronavirus-free first.
What's more, the test must be performed within 72 hours of departure. Which, in some countries is trickier than you may think, given the demand for tests versus the capacity to perform them.

Flights to and from Russia are set to resume on Saturday. The first routes to open connect with Britain, Turkey, and the rather more exotic destination of Tanzania.

“Foreign citizens planning to fly into Russia, including transit passengers, are required to provide a negative Covid-19 PCR-test result in order to check-in and board the flight," the company said. “Passengers must be tested within 72 hours of the flight departure. They will also be required to complete a special form during the flight.”
