MOSCOW, February 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian and EU business communities stand for visa-free travel, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday, referring to the Brussels-hosted seminar “Russia: Intellectual Tourism” organized by the European Association of Tour Operators with support from the Russian delegation to the European Union.
“The participants discussed prospects of Russia-EU visa-free travel, problems related to the EU visa policy and the development of Russia’s tourism sector,” the ministry said. “Senior officials for the Russia-EU visa-free dialog affirmed a positive inclination to the dynamic and efficient taking of joint steps towards Russia-EU visa-free travel. The seminar showed that Russian and EU business communities were interested in broadening the capacities of tourist markets with further simplification of visa formalities and visa-free travel for citizens of Russia and the European Union.”
