Russian Federation Travel Insurance Requirements

Last updated: 03/07/2024

Russia Travel Insurance Requirements

The U.S. Embassy Moscow does not advise travel to Russia as the embassy has limited capacity to assist U.S. travelers due to the Covid-19 pandemic. There is currently also a Level 4 travel advisory for the country by the U.S Department of State, advising U.S citizens not to travel to Russia due to ongoing conflict.

Travelers from foreign countries are required to have a visa to travel to Russia. For travelers from outside countries to obtain the required visa for entry into Russia, medical travel insurance is a necessity. The policy is required to last for the traveler’s entire trip to Russia, but there is not a minimum amount needed.

Squaremouth’s Travel Insurance Recommendations

Although there is not a specific dollar amount required to visit Russia, Squaremouth recommends travelers buy a policy with at least $50,000 in Emergency Medical coverage, and at least $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage. These are the standard amounts recommended for international travel. This coverage is reimbursement-based, meaning the traveler is typically required to pay their medical expenses upfront and then file a claim for reimbursement when they return home.

The Emergency Medical benefit of travel insurance can reimburse travelers for the costs of medical treatment in the event of an illness or injury during their trip. This includes physician services, ambulance expenses, and other costs of treatment.

The Medical Evacuation benefit can transport a traveler to the nearest adequate hospital in the event of a medical emergency. If the treating physician determines the traveler should return home for better treatment, this benefit can also cover those costs.

While medical benefits are the only requirement, many travelers may opt to cover their trip costs too. Travelers have the option to purchase Trip Cancellation coverage to protect their prepaid and non-refundable trip expenses. This benefit can cover events such as cancellations or interruptions due to sickness, weather, or terrorism.
