Rostourism Asks for Simplification of Visa Regime for Foreigners
The Head of Rostourism Oleg Safonov has given a speech during the meeting in Simferopol and offered simplification of visa regime for foreign tourists that are eager to visit Russia. The official is sure that such measures will make Russian Federation more attractive for tourists.

The head of the department offers new procedure that considers arranging all necessary visa formalities after tourists have entered the territory of Russian Federation. In addition obtaining electronic visas will also be beneficiary for foreigners who will be able to save much time.

Safonov shared his opinion that current procedure of arranging touristsí visa formalities is rather collocated and slows down touristsí inflow. He thinks that the only way to solve this problem is to implement and develop new technologies in the process of visa obtaining.

Earlier Russian Foreign Secretary has already launched experimental procedure of providing short-term tourists visas on Russian territory to visitor of Kaliningrad region. The results of the experiment will be summed up at the end of 2015.
