The Ministry of Eastern Development and Development together with the subjects of the Far East will develop a package of measures to attract tourist flow. Most of the proposals relate to the promotion of domestic tourism among residents of the Far Eastern Federal District.

According to the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, in 2019 alone, 7,5 million tourists visited the Far East, of which 6,4 million were in domestic tourism, and 1,1 million were foreigners. Most tourists came to Primorye (five million tourists in 2019), Khabarovsk Territory (580 thousand tourists), Amur Region (440 thousand tourists), Buryatia (420 thousand tourists), Sakhalin (300 thousand tourists), Kamchatsky region (230 thousand tourists).

As noted by the head of the Ministry of East Development Alexander Kozlov, separately, it is necessary to consider the rest of the Far East, including a trip by private car to picturesque places. At the same time, he urged to evaluate the placements, their location and other conditions in order to more clearly formulate support measures.

Along with this, he spoke about the proposals of the Ministry of Eastern Development. So, the department plans to introduce a social tax deduction from personal income tax for Russian citizens who have traveled to certain subjects of the Far East. Travel expenses, some of which can be compensated, will include air travel and a tour package, including accommodation. The possibility of medical accompaniment of tourists is also considered, so that in the regions there are high-quality medical services in place.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the cabinet to formulate proposals on August 10 measures to restore domestic tourismand. Now in the regions begins the opening of the tourist season. Open up hostels on Baikalbeaches in Primorye.
