To Russia almost without visa, but under one condition. The Ministry of Economic Development discusses mitigation of entrance tourism


Simplification of a visa regime became especially relevant after last FIFA World Cup. What is offered in the government and whether will help to earn ease from tourism? Photo: depositphotos.com the Ministry of Economic Development can be understood. The country leaders have set the task: in six years to increase non-oil export almost twice (to a quarter of one trillion dollars). Here also export of services including tourist, it is impossible to make it without mitigation of a visa regime belongs. The Russian visa — one of the main obstacles for foreign tourists. The fine football idea of Fan ID works only until the end of 2018, and not the fact that fans will arrive again. Speaks simply: They have already seen Russia, have admired, but there are a wish and to go to other countries. To Russia, maybe, next year, but action of the passport of the fan will already end. As absolutely the authorities are obviously not going to cancel visas, officials look for other ideas. For example, to develop a tourist's package which will include recommendations what to visit in what hotels to stay at what restaurants to eat. Well, but it isn't enough, Gwyn Thomas's Englishman living in Russia says: "I think, the World Cup was advertizing for the whole world to draw attention to Russia and tourism that they wanted to arrive to Russia. Of course, it only beginning of promotion". In what main thing problem? To receive the visa, it is necessary to pass several circles of hell: it and the invitation from Russia, both the Russian bureaucracy, and long weeks of expectation. But it for those who travel independently, and those tourists whom we see in our cities, generally "paketnik" (if to buy a tour, then the visa will be made by the agency). As a result what, according to media, discusses the government, already works. Only thing: to buyers of a package, as offer in the Cabinet of Ministers, will make the online visa which, probably, will be free. But such tourists and so to us go, it is necessary to attract those who go not to travel agency, and on the website Booking.com, the head of excursion bureau Moscow Free Tour Ayrat Bagautdinov argues: "Individual tourists who come to us really very often say that the visa was one of the most difficult obstacles, one of factors which postponed their visit. In individual tourism there are people who, as a rule, have bigger solvency, leave high checks in Russia. Here for this category of people, unfortunately, the procedure doesn't become simpler". Opponents of open borders always adduce an argument: we don't want that was as in Europe where there arrive residents of the desirable countries different not always. But in it there are just no problems. The problem is rather philosophical and ideological. Russians (at least, part of them) very much want to go without visas to Europe which in turn doesn't wish that Russians freely to it drove. Then why to discover Russia for Europeans? Let it will be symmetric. Only Europe will make good money on tourism and without Russians, and we hardly. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
