Introduction of e-visas at the Zabaykalsk vehicle crossing points
According to the Minister of Investment Development Mikhail Churkin e-visas will be accepted at the international vehicle crossing point Zabaikalsk in the Trans-Baikal Territory in 2020.
“This year, foreigners with e-visa began to be accepted at the Kadala airport (Chita). Now, such a mechanism will work at the international vehicle crossing point Zabaykalsk”, said Mikhail Churkin.
In his opinion, introduction of e-visa will attract foreign citizens to the region, facilitate bureaucratic procedures and unload existing vehicle crossing points.
The head of regional tourism department Valentin Anikiev said that three vehicle crossing points in Zabaykalsky Krai — Kadala Airport (Chita), automobile and railway checkpoints near Zabaykalsk are ready to receive foreign citizens with e-visas.
Introduction of simplified entry regime was made possible due to the entry of Transbaikalia into the Far Eastern Federal District. The e-visa regime has been operating in the Far East since August 2017.
As emphasized, more than 1 thousand foreign citizens have already taken the opportunity to come to Transbaikalia with e-visa.
