Foreigners have simplified the procedure for entering the Far East
The State Duma adopted in the third, final reading the law on the extension of the simplified procedure for the entry of foreigners by electronic visas to the Far East.
A simplified procedure will operate at automobile, river and mixed checkpoints in the Far Eastern Federal District. It does not apply to sea and railway checkpoints, since there is no technical ability to check electronic visas.
The State Duma believes that simplifying the order of entry will create additional favorable conditions for attracting foreign tourists to the regions of the Far East. This in turn will lead to the development of tourism and social infrastructure.
In January, the Russian government expanded the list of countrieswhose citizens can apply for an electronic visa to enter the Far East. The list was expanded from 18 to 53 countries.
