Foreigners will be allowed to Chukotka
161 foreign tourists from Germany, Austria, USA, Switzerland, Great Britain from the ship Hanseatic will be allowed into the settlement of Provideniya to Chukotka. The authorities of the region promise not to repeat the situation that occurred on July 28 with the Silver Discoverer cruise liner, whose passengers were not allowed by the border guards to go ashore, allegedly due to the inconsistency of the route with Rosturizm.
The authorities of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug are engaged in solving the issue, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta. According to the press service of the regional government, the governor of Chukotka Roman Kopin held a series of consultations with the leadership of the Federal Agency for Tourism of the Russian Federation and the Federal Security Service of Russia.
"Misunderstanding between agencies and the travel agent has been eliminated. We came to a mutual decision to approve the routes of Pacific Network, which pass through the territory of Chukotka. At the present time, all necessary documents have been prepared for the further implementation of the tourist program with visits to the localities of the region by foreign cruise ships. Chukotka has a great potential in the tourism sector, but it needs to be implemented jointly by state authorities, profile agencies and companies. Such situations should not concern the tourists themselves, "the head of the region said.
This year, the General Agent in the Russian Federation for cruise foreign ships, the Pacific Network Company, planned 16 for cruise ship calls to Chukotka. About three thousand foreign tourists had to visit the region.
