Visa Entry May Be Eased For Sport, Business, And Cultural Tourists

Russia may facilitate the visa entry for two categories of foreign tourists: visitors to cultural, business and sportive events in the country.

      The initiative suggests that tourists who enter Russia with a ticket to any such event will have the right to stay in the country without the visa for up to 10 days.

      There is also a suggestion to offer a 72-hour visa-free stay in Russia for transit passengers, similar to the regulations currently in force for cruise passengers.

      No exact dates are set for when these suggestions may acquire legal power. However, the Russian Tourism Board express hope this may already happen in 2013.
