Deputy Culture and Tourism Minister George Nikitiadis on Thursday revealed that he had just concluded a series of meetings with the largest Russian tour operators over the last two days, seeking to further boost the rise of Russian tourists visiting Greece.
In separate meetings with each tour operator, Nikitiadis discussed issues concerning the organisation and preparation of the upcoming tourism season and agreed to look into the possibility of allowing tour operators to themselves prepare the documents that each Russian needs in order to receive a visa, in order to make the process simpler and reduce the amount of time and the cost involved.
