Russians Visiting Greece Set to Soar

Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) participated in this year's Moscow International Travel and Tourism Exhibition (MITT).

According to feedback collected from Russian travel agents and tour operators, visitors from Russia to Greece are expected to exceed one million during the summer months.

According to Dimitris Trifonopoulos, secretary general, GNTO, the encouraging messages from Russia are the result of a speedier Schengen visa procedure.

In addition, GNTO members underlined the readiness of the Greek consular services in Russia, in order to meet the increased demand for visas by Russian nationals wishing to travel to Greece, which skyrocketed in the first two months of the year.

During the exhibition, GNTO was named as Τez Tour's leading partner during the Tez WorldBerry awards.
