MOSCOW, June 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The Egyptian government has taken unprecedented measures to facilitate a visa regime for Russian tourists, who go on vacations in this Arab country. The Egyptian Embassy in Moscow noted, “The Egyptian prime minister decided that the clients of Russian tourist operators that will arrive in the country from June 1 to August 31 will be exempt from visa fees, to intensify tourism.” “This decision will be in effect within three months,” the embassy noted.
The list of the countries, which intend to facilitate the life of Russian tourists, was supplemented with Albania, which introduces a visa-free regime for Russians in the summer season already for the fourth year. “The visa-free regime will be in effect from May 25 to September 25, 2012,” the Albanian Embassy in Moscow reported.
Meanwhile, the Croatian government decided to cancel visas for Russian citizens from April 1 to October 31, 2012. During the foresaid period Russian citizens need only a valid foreign travel passport in that country. As it is the case with Albania, the visas are cancelled for Russian citizens, who visit Croatia, already for the fourth year in a row to increase the revenues of the tourism industry.
Montenegro is another Balkan country, which introduced the visa-free regime for Russian citizens in the summer season. Russian tourists can stay in that country for up to 30 days.
As for favourite Turkish resorts for Russian tourists, that country increased the permitted term of constant visa-free stay in that country for Russian citizens, who have ordinary foreign travel passports, from 30 to 60 days. “These Turkish rules are in effect until December 31, 2012, inclusively,” the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
