Due to the introduction of new prevention measures, the government has revised the quarantine restrictions.

Children under 1 year old will not need to take the PCR test when entering Armenia.

Visitors are exempted from a 14-day self-isolation in case they present upon arrival a negative PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours.

The certificate for the PCR test must be in English, Russian or Armenian. The letterhead of the certificate should officially indicate the name of the medical facility conducting the test as well as the contact information.
