On July 28, the regional border guard service did not let a group of foreign tourists to come ashore. Eighty-three passengers from Austria, Argentina, Great Britain, Germany, Denmark, Israel, Canada, Latvia, the United States, South Africa and Switzerland had arrived by the Silver Discoverer.
The border guard service cited a letter from the Russian Tourism Agency which advised against receiving foreign cruises.
The governor said he had held consultations with the Agency and the Federal Security Service to work out the issue. “The misunderstanding has been resolved. All necessary documents for further implementation of the tourism program with visits to various destinations in the region by foreign cruise liners have been prepared,” Kopin said.

The next cruise liner, Hanseatic, is scheduled to call at Provideniye on August 1. Travelling aboard it will be 161 tourists from Austria, Germany, Great Britain, the U.S., and Switzerland.
Chukotka’s authorities are expecting at least 16 foreign cruise liners and some 3,000 tourists to visit the region this year.
