About 7-8 million Russians may not go abroad due to debts
About 7-8 million Russian citizens possess overdue debts in the quantities of more than 350 Euros. It is reminded that with such a debt, border guards do not allow travelers go to other states in the event of an injunction to travel, President of the National Association of Professional Collection Agencies (NAPKA) Elman Mehdiyev said it in the interview.
A typical Russian debtor of these 7-8 million is a man of 30-35 years old, married and having children. The average general income of a debtor's family is 350-700 Euros, and in large cities it can be much higher, two to three times. Most often, these debters are drivers, sellers and waiters.
"Today, about 7-8 million people are potentially restricted to travel abroad. Thus, every sixth borrower, provided that the lender receives a court decision, will not be able to leave the country," Mehdiyev explained.
According to the existing law, border guards do not allow debtors entered into the database with an injunction with a debt of more than 350 Euros overdue by 90 days to go abroad. Therefore, it is better to plan an overseas trip by checking the debt through the FSSP website 10-14 days before the trip.
