Restrictions on entry and  exit to Armenia through the air borders have been lifted since  September 2, and bans on communication only across land borders  remain.  Restrictions on visits by citizens of Armenia to other  countries remain due to legislative regulations introduced by one  country or another, and are not conditioned by bilateral relations.  As for Russia, the restrictions imposed by the Russian government on  March 16 of this year are still in effect, which also set the  categories of citizens who are allowed to enter the country.  Negotiations with the Russian Federation are continuing on the  resumption of regular flights and the abolition of the ban on entry  for citizens of Armenia.
