Foreigners in Moscow are experiencing problems obtaining the QR code required to visit the capital’s catering establishments. This was reported by the Kommersant newspaper.

The publication interviewed several employees of diplomatic missions and foreign embassies. It turned out that difficulties arise mainly in those who were vaccinated with drugs unregistered in Russia or had had coronavirus, but did not apply to Russian medical institutions.

At the same time, according to Kommersant, the employees of the Armenian embassy who are vaccinated with Sputnik V cannot visit public catering establishments. The interlocutor of the newspaper clarified that the information was sent to the Russian Foreign Ministry, where they assured that they were addressing the situation. The department added that this is a complex problem affecting not only foreign diplomats in Moscow.

The publication specifies that the only chance for foreigners to receive a QR code is to take PCR tests every three days. It also says that difficulties arise for Russians who have been vaccinated abroad. The Moscow health department has not yet explained how to solve the problem.
