Russians violate border regime more often than Chinese

Russian citizens are more likely to violate the border regime. In particular, 69 Russian violators and 15 Chinese were revealed this year. As a rule, this is due to the reluctance of the Russians to issue special passes to stay in the border area. In 2013, the situation was diametrically opposite.

“Some of our citizens do not want to make special passes, motivating this by the fact that they make a single entry, and they do not need a pass for a long time. And the second category is citizens who made a spontaneous decision to leave for recreation, fishing or visit their relatives, and did not apply for a pass, "said the head of the border guard department of the FSB department for the Khabarovsk Territory and the Jewish Autonomous Region Fyodor Blinov.

The rules for issuing a pass to the frontier zone have been substantially tightened since this year. Now the document for entry does not need to be issued only to those who live in 5 km from the border zone. The exception is made by those who have a dacha in the border zone that is registered as a property. They need to present a document on the right of ownership for travel.

Everyone else needs a pass. Moreover, you can issue it yourself on the portal of public services or in the interregional border department of the FSB, as well as with the help of a relative living in the border area in the form of an invitation. The pass is made for a year, then it can be extended. The document is drawn up in about 30 days for Russians and 60 days for foreign citizens.

Violators of the border regime face administrative liability - a fine or a warning.
