China – Macau targets Russian visitors

By - 2 January 2013

In 2013, the Macau Tourism Development Bureau will open for the first time in Russia. The decision was taken after the signing of an agreement on mutual visa-free travel between the Government of Macau and the Russian Federation. Now nationals of both countries can enjoy visa-free travel for up to 30 days. In 2011, Macau was visited by 16,000 Russians, despite the fact that there are no direct flights from Vladivostok to Macau, with visitors needing to transfer in Seoul. Despite this, Hong Kong and Macau are becoming increasingly popular destinations among the residents of Russian regions such as Primorsky Krai.

Russia will become the 17th country where Macau tourist offices have opened. According to statistics, a decline in tourist flow to this special administrative region of China has been recently observed, but officials are optimistic and seeking to increase the number of tourists visiting Macau in 2013.
