Russia To Offer Vaccine Tours for Foreigners; But Sputnik V Vaccine Not Recognized Globally

Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency is partnering with tourist agencies to organize travel packages for travellers, with packages including medical services, air travel, accommodations, meals, excursions, and a vaccination. Zarina Doguzova, head of Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency, confirmed that these packages are ready to launch despite the short notice, and the hope is for these packages to boost tourism after the pandemic. “For a convenient entry of groups of foreigners we propose to use the electronic visa mechanism which would allow to visit Russia swiftly and comfortably. We are also proposing to expand the list of cities where the foreigners may get inoculated. Right now this can be done only in Moscow,” said Doguzova. However, as reported by Reuters, Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine has yet to be approved by the WHO, but the country expects approval within two months.
