Russian citizens for the first time received long-term and multiple-entry visas of the DPRK

For the first time, Russian citizens received long-term and multiple-entry DPRK visas, the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East said. Employees of the NGO Mostovik were among the first to receive such visas. They are implementing a large investment project in the DPRK.

The agreement to start issuing long-term and multiple-entry visas to Russian citizens was reached by Minister for the Development of the Far East A. Galushka and Minister of Foreign Economic Affairs of the DPRK Li Ryo Nam during the 6 meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission on Trade, Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation between the Russian Federation and the DPRK which took place in June of this year in Vladivostok.

Finally, all questions about the issuance of multiple and long-term visas were resolved at the August meeting of the Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East, Alexander Galushka, with the Ambassador of the DPRK in Russia, KIM Yong Jae.

Alexander Galushka stressed that for Russia it is important to implement the agreements already reached between the two countries, namely: the transition to settlements in rubles; issuance of long-term visas to Russian citizens working in companies-investors; providing Russian investors with full access to mobile communications and internal Internet in the territory of the DPRK.

The start of issuing multiple-entry visas to Russian citizens is one of such practical steps to comply with mutual agreements. These measures are included in a package of unique conditions for the implementation of projects of Russian investors in the DPRK, which was developed and approved by the heads of the Russian-Korean intergovernmental commission A. Galushka and Lee Ryo Nam.

The Russian side also attracts North Korean labor resources for the implementation of development projects on the territory of the Russian Far East. It is planned that the trade turnover of the two countries should reach 1 billion dollars by 2020 year.
