Thanks to the visa-free regime of tourist flow from South Korea to Russia grew by almost 40%

The flow of tourists from South Korea to Russia increased by 37% after the abolition of visas, according to the press service of the Primorsky Territory Administration, citing the president of the Korean International Trade Association (KITA), Khan Dok Su.

"We are very pleased that our policy is supported at the highest level. In particular, such a step was the abolition of visas between our countries. Thanks to this, the flow of tourists from Korea to Russia has increased by 37 percent," Han Dok Soo said during the working meetings with the Governor of Primorye Vladimir Miklushevsky, whose words are quoted in the message.

During the meeting, representatives of both sides also discussed the prospect of establishing a joint medical center and a golf club on the Russky Island in Vladivostok. According to representatives of South Korea, this will contribute to a further increase in the tourist flow, since residents of the peninsula are interested in traveling to Russia.
