Khabarovsk will have the opportunity to go to Fuyuan without a visa

Khabarovsk will be able to go to Fuyuan for a month without a visa. Such an initiative is now being considered by representatives of Russia and China. These changes, according to Deputy Mayor for Social Affairs Svetlana Shevchenko, should reduce the cost of travel for Khabarovsk residents, as well as expand the tourist opportunities for residents of these cities.

- Cancellation of the visa regime will help to significantly reduce the cost of travel to our sister city. Khabarovsk residents will only have to purchase a ticket for a motor ship or another type of transport, not spending more money on a visa or time to obtain it. This will significantly improve the tourist infrastructure between our cities, - said Svetlana Shevchenko.

However, the employees of tourist pavilions, who sell vouchers to the twin-city, cannot say for sure exactly how much this price will fall and whether there will be a decline at all.

- The cost of a voucher on weekdays today is about 4-4,5 thousand rubles in different companies. The main components of this cost are port taxes, hotel and breakfast. I think that the abolition of visa entry will primarily please those who plan their trips on their own, without a group. Well, the Chinese tourists, I think, too, - said Natalya, one of the Khabarovsk tour operators.

The dates of entry into force of the monthly visa-free regime have not yet been determined. The preliminary plan assumes the beginning of the action of this project immediately after the opening of the border crossing on the Big Ussuri Island.
