Insurance against accidents is obligatory for entry into Russia, and without such insurance you may not be issued with a visa. If you are coming from a country that does not require a visa, you still require insurance.
Usually, such insurance for travelers should cover treatment costs of at least 30,000 euros. Standard insurance includes medical costs for outpatient and inpatient treatment, costs for emergency dental aid and medical transport, as well as transport costs for the return of children to their homeland if their relatives have been hospitalized or have passed away.
Carry your insurance policy with you – this will allow you or the medics, in force majeure circumstances, to quickly contact the insurance company and resolve financial issues.
In Russia, a mandatory general emergency care service operates. In the event of a problem arising, phone 112 (the unified number for emergency services) or 103 – this is the specific number for medical assistance. You will be given qualified medical assistance, and hospitalized if necessary.
