Furthermore, Elena Pavlyukova, General Director Deputy of Smart Travel, and Development Director of Divex travel, Veronika Birman, pointed out that in case visas are issued on arrival operators would be able to promote last-minute tours that will stimulate tourist flow to the country. ‘Last year Indonesia set a good example having simplified the procedure’, said Pavlyukova. Meanwhile, Elena Komarova, Tourism Director of IntAir, outlined an interesting detail: ‘we usually form combined tours to the region. Tourists prefer to travel to several countries at once. Therefore, the fewer the visas the more varied tours we can offer our clients’.
However, there is no official information regarding the exact date of changes.
