In view of the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, as well as the current security situation in Russia, Singaporeans should continue to defer all non-essential travel to Russia, and defer all travel to Ukraine.

There was a major terrorist attack in the Moscow Region on 22 March 2024, and a bombing in St Petersburg in April 2023. In addition, there has been an increase in the frequency of drone strikes affecting Moscow and St Petersburg in recent months. There have also been increased incidents of artillery shelling and drone strikes in regions bordering Ukraine.


Singaporeans travelling to Russia should exercise personal responsibility and purchase comprehensive travel insurance. They should be familiar with the terms and coverage of their insurance (e.g. whether medical evacuation will be covered) should adverse situations such as terrorism and/or war-related incidents occur.


Singaporeans who are in Russia are strongly advised to remain vigilant, monitor local news closely and heed the advice of the local authorities. They should take necessary precautions for their personal safety and eRegister with MFA immediately at if they have not done so.
