Russia, China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea will create unified tourist visa-free zone
Russia, China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea are planning to create an international visa-free area in the delta of the Tumentszyan River. The construction of the tourist area’s infrastructure and its administration will be managed jointly by the three partner countries.
It is reported that a tourist area will cover the Chinese city Hunchun of the Jilin Province, the Russian village Hasan and the territory of North Korea – Tumentszyan Dong village. In the province of Jixin the local authorities have already established a working group which will have to prepare a project of the zone’s creation.
