Russia has recently lifted travel bans for nationals and residents of some countries (see, e.g., here). I happen to reside in one of these countries (Germany) and as an EU citizen (Italy) automatically have a residence permit. In addition, I have dual citizenship and also hold a passport of a country (Brazil) for which a visa is not required to travel to Russia under normal circumstances, but which is currently still affected by the Russian travel ban.

Can I travel to Russia under the current circumstances? Do I need a visa as an Italian citizen? Or can I enter Russia without a visa with my Brazilian passport (along with adequate evidence of residence in Germany)?

  • As you hold an italian passport, Italian passport requirements apply for you. I would personally use the italian passport as you could seek diplomatic support more easily by going to an EU consulate/embassy, rather than a brazilian one. It might be also mentioning that there may be some scruteny for using your Brazilian passport due to the Brazilian COVID variant (although wikipedia suggests nothing of the sort.)
