MOSCOW, March 11 (Itar-Tass) – Russians will have no problems with obtaining visas to travel to Croatia, the country’s Ambassador to Russia Igor Pokaz said on Monday.
On April 1, Croatia introduces a visa regime for citizens of the Russian Federation.
“In Zagreb, during a meeting with the Foreign Minister, I have initiated the issue, and the minister said Croatia will be flexible in issuing visas to Russians,” the ambassador said during a meeting with head of Russia’s EMERCOM Vladimir Puchkov.
Pokaz said that the embassy in Moscow would open a new consular section not far from the embassy.
“Fifteen new officers are coming to Moscow to work at the consular section, so that Russian citizens did not have problems with obtaining visas,” he said, adding that a Schengen visa will be valid in the territory of Croatia. “Russian citizens will have an option of multi-entry visas, and we shall offer special benefits for businesses.”
