Air transit tourists from 20 countries may be permitted to stay on the territory of Russia for three days without visas. However, the purchase of an air ticket in a Russian air company will become one of conditions, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported.

The new visa rule is proposed to introduce for citizens of France, Germany, Poland, Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Finland and Greece, Canada, Australia, Japan, South Korea, the United States and Singapore, the portal for the publication of the information about the drafting of regulatory acts said.
Experts believe that this policy can increase the tourist inflow in the country by more than 50 percent.
