Visa-free regime to bring more Russian tourists to Jamaica
A visa waiver agreement between Russia and Jamaica will increase the Caribbean country’s attractiveness for Russian tourists, the Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov said. “An intergovernmental visa waiver agreement that Ms. Minister and I had signed in New York in September last year took effect in November,” Lavrov noted at a press conference following talks with his Jamaican counterpart Kamina Johnson-Smith. “The number of Russian tourists visiting Jamaica has significantly grown since then,” he added.
Lavrov also pointed out that 2020 would mark 45 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries. “We have agreed to celebrate the anniversary properly,” he said.
