Because Russia's border is only open to citizens of countries with which it has resumed air travel, this has been a key issue for many foreigners living in Russia. Family members of Russian citizens, individuals holding Highly Qualified Specialist visas, diplomats and other select categories are still able to enter Russia regardless of their own citizenship.
