MOSCOW, December 28 (Itar-Tass) — Nearly 400,000 Russians will be unable to spend New Year holidays abroad this year due to debts. As the Federal Service of Court Bailiffs told Itar-Tass on Thursday, in January-November 2011 over 372,000 resolutions were made to impose temporary restrictions on debtors’ trips outside Russia.
Nearly one-third of the debtors – over 102,000 – have child support debts.
The FSCB said the restrictions have forced over 25,000, including over 3,000 child support debtors, to repay their debts.
The FSCB advises everybody to make timely inquiries about their indebtedness, if any, at the local offices of court bailiffs.
This year the court bailiffs blacklisted nearly 40,000 residents of Moscow and the Moscow Region - 24,000 city residents (including 5,000 child support debtors) and 15,000 Moscow Region residents (including over 3,000 child support debtors).
Exit restrictions are imposed for a period of up to six months, but they may be prolonged. After the debt has been settled the procedure of its cancellation takes about two weeks.
The FSCB said that at present a bill was undergoing coordination that would set the minimum sum of a debt that can result in foreign travel restrictions at no less than 5,000 rubles.
Information about exit restrictions can be obtained from court bailiffs’ offices and also via hot lines. In all regions the information about hot lines and other social actions, as well as the opportunities for making inquiries about indebtedness is available on the web-sites of the service’s territorial divisions.
