SEOUL, June 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Visa-free regime between Russia and South Korea enforced on January 1 has stimulated mutual tourist turnover, South Korean Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
The intergovernmental agreement signed last November and regulating visa regime between the two countries led to 61% growth in the number of South Koreans visiting Russia, reaching 25,200 people in the first quarter. Over the same period, the number of Russian tourists to South Korea increased from 26,500 to more than 36,000, including tourists coming for medical purposes, the ministry reported. The agreement reduced time and costs of mutual visits, it added.
South Korea is the first Northeast Asian country that signed such an agreement with Russia.
