The French Embassy In Moscow Will Increase Visa-issuing Period
[IMG=20046-5808]Starting from June 26th the official visa-issuing period in the French Embassy will increase from 5 to 10 days, said representatives of the Consulate at the meeting with 13 leading Russian tour operators. The new regime will be adopted until the end of summer, followed by possible improvement of the situation in September. Meanwhile, such news at the peak of the season cannot stimulate the popularization and development of the destination. Moreover, even current tourist flow to France is at risk. Thus, Veronica Sirotkina, the Head of French Department of DSBW Tours Continent, explained: ‘we provide regional travel companies with fixed blocks. Given the new rules two weeks for visa issuing for tourists from regions become three weeks’. Furthermore, the longer visa-issuing period affects the period of active sales of tours to France. Therefore, travel market experts do not exclude the possibility of adopting changes within the air traffic volume to France and renegotiation of contracts with Airline Companies.
