Inside the country all quarantine measures are being released in three steps before the end of June, so all the shops, restaurants and children's institutions have already opened or will get back to operations soon. Traveling within the country is also not restricted any more for all citizens regardless of their region.
TravelWorks experts see two main actions needed to be taken now by education institutions that want to welcome their current and new students from Russia.
First of all, it is important for the countries where the students want to fly and study to open the borders. Thus, lobbying for this decision is highly important. As our quick poll shows, over 90% of Russian long-term students are ready to arrive in a country of their studies and be self-isolated for the 2 weeks on their expenses. Thus, the countries that will open first and offer the easiest terms could win from this situation, let alone the institutions that could develop strategies to financially compensate this period.
Another vital step for institutions that want to attract new students from Russia now is to address the audience digitally, demonstrating the measures of support that they developed and reassuring the customers that they easily could refund the money in case of unpredicted scenarios. One of the best ways to reach the Russian audience digitally is participating in agent's webinars.
