Rostourism recommended to suspend the sale of tours to Italy and Korea

Rostourism recommended to suspend the sale of tours to Italy and Korea

After Rospotrebnadzor announced that there was a threat to the safety of life and health of tourists in Italy, South Korea and Iran due to the coronavirus, Rostourism recommended that tour operators and travel agents suspend the sale of vouchers and tickets to these countries. The restriction will remain in effect until the situation improves there.

Tourists can terminate the contracts for the purchase of permits or change their conditions. At the same time, upon termination, the buyer should receive the full cost of the tour product, if he has not yet flown to another country, and part of the cost of the ticket if he has already set off on a trip.

Independent tourists who bought tickets, hotel places, excursions can also return money. To do this, they need to go to the places where they purchased these services. Tourists such as tour operators and agencies have already begun to refuse to travel to Italy, South Korea and Iran.

Russia will introduce from March 1 air traffic restriction with South Korea and has already imposed a ban on issuing transit visas from Iran. In South Korea, more than 1 people have already become infected with the coronavirus, 200 have died. In Iran and Italy in recent days there has been a sharp increase in the number of cases.
