Date: 29.03.2007

Orgainsed trips to Bulgaria for Russian tourists will become visa tax-free, head of State Agency for Tourism (SAT) Anelia Kroushkova told a press conference on March 23.

The requirements for individuals will remain the same and the tax will be 20 leva.

The price of the tourism visa remains 20 leva, Kroushkova said.

Russian government introduced a $300 000 bank guarantee or insurance from tour operators to work with Bulgarian companies.

Russia has more than 10 000 tour operators. Nearly 200 offer trips to Bulgaria. After the introduction of the new requirements the number of Russian companies operating in Bulgaria is expected to decrease.

Deputy chairman of SAT Stanislav Novakov said that during the the second Intour Market (ITM) 2007 tourism expo in Moscow, Russian operators said that they were satisfied with their co-operation with Bulgarian consular services.

At the Intour Market Bulgaria presented itself as a year-round tourism destination.
