Sometimes it seems that the epidemic is only in Armenia, but in reality the circulation of the CIS countries to Russia, as well as to each other, is closed. The Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said this at the Government sitting, referring to the issue of citizens wishing to go abroad for work.
He informed that the resumption of passenger transportation and the opening of the borders will take place in mid-September, and in a few days one or two dozen airlines will resume regular flights to Armenia. According to Pashinyan, this issue will soon be discussed within the EEU.
The Deputy Prime Minister Mher Grigoryan added that the EEU has officially raised the issue of approving the scenario of regular passenger transportation and hopes that a common rule will work.
The Prime Minister noted that citizens arriving in Armenia from abroad, who do not want to be quarantined for 14 days, can pass a test at the airport, and if the result is negative, they will not be quarantined.
The Deputy Prime Minister, commandant Tigran Avinyan informed that there is no ban on entering Armenia at the moment, and those who want to come to Armenia can come. According to him, currently 20 sampling points are being built at the airport, and those who want to be tested on the spot will have that opportunity.
