The meeting with Russian tour operators will be held in Moscow on Tuesday while the meeting with Ukrainian tour operators is scheduled for Wednesday. The Croatian minister will be accompanied by the Director of the Head Office of the Croatian Tourist Board, Meri Matesic, and the Chief of Consular Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, Vinko Ljubicic.
The meetings will be a chance for Minister Lorencin to hear first hand how to simplify and speed up visa issuance procedures for Russian and Ukrainian tourists who wish to visit Croatia.
Ahead of its accession to the European Union on July 1, Croatia has adopted the EU visa regime under which all citizens of non-EU countries require a visa when travelling to the EU. This includes Russia, Ukraine and Turkey from which Croatia has seen a rise in the number of tourists in recent years.
