Russia has lifted the entry ban it had placed on South Korean nationals to control the spread of COVID-19.
The Moscow government posted a decree on its website Sunday announcing the removal of the entrance ban on travelers from South Korea, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
Russian nationals can now also freely visit those nations.
Earlier, Moscow said it would allow the resumption of flights to South Korea starting September 27.
Russia banned the entry of foreigners and international flights in March amid the global spread of the new coronavirus and has been easing the bans gradually since August.
The country's coronavirus caseload reached 1,103,399 as of Sunday, according to its crisis center, and the total death toll climbed to 19,418.
