MASTER-IAC robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Spain (IAC Teide Observatory) was pointed to the Swift GRB210402.92 (trigger No 1040123,13h 13m 01.92s , +44d 30m 46.8s, R=0.00130556) errorbox 108 sec after trigger time at 2021-04-02 22:07:40 UT, with upper limit up to  19.1 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 42 deg. The sun  altitude  is -35.7 deg. 

MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) was pointed to the Swift GRB210402.92 errorbox 123 sec after trigger time at 2021-04-02 22:07:55 UT, with upper limit up to  18.8 mag. The observations began at zenith distance =  0 deg. The sun  altitude  is -40.6 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 72 deg., longitude l = 109 deg.
