MOSCOW, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Mexico will go on working to ease visa requirements for Russian tourists, Mexican Ambassador to Russia Ruben Beltran told a news conference on Tuesday.
Asked about the possible abolition of so-called electronic visas, the ambassador noted that the procedure had already been simplified. Russian tourists only need to fill out a questionnaire on the Internet to apply for a visa.
“The existing format allows Russians to easily enter the country,” he said. “We will continue working to make the procedure even easier. But we should not forget that this process should be bilateral.”
Beltran noted that “it was, unfortunately, difficult for Mexicans to travel to Russia today”.
“We hope very much that the Russian authorities will also decide to simplify the visa procedure for Mexican citizens,” he said.
The diplomat stated that about 108,000 Russian tourists visited Mexico last year. This year, the number of Russian travellers to Mexico is due to increase to 140,000. And in 2018, the country expects about 500,000 guests from Russia.
