What countries can Russian tourists go to after the closure of Turkey
The range of countries where a tourist can go from April to June is significantly limited and there are few alternatives in terms of price / service ratio as in Turkey.
Nowadays, many countries have already declared their intention to receive Russian tourists, but an agreement with them on the resumption of flights has not yet been reached.
Currently, real alternatives to Turkey for Russian tourists are:
Egypt is the most suitable alternative to Turkey. However, direct charter flights to Egyptian resorts have been closed for 5,5 years. Flight through Cairo is more expensive, longer and more difficult. There is also an alternative route to Egypt via Belarus.
UAE - the destination can be considered as alternative to Turkey, although in general the Emirates are significantly more expensive in price. In addition, the number of flights to the UAE is still limited by the Operations Headquarters.
Cyprus, which was opened to tourists on April 1, could also be an alternative, but the prospects for the destination in terms of transportation are not yet clear. There are also concerns about the ability of hotels to quickly host tourists. In addition, in the country, tourists have to pay additional covid tests.
Tunisia declares its readiness to open from the end of April and is negotiating with the Russian authorities on this matter.
Also, Montenegro and Croatia announced their readiness to host Russian tourists, because they have not yet fully entered in the Eurozone, and therefore have more freedom in maneuver.
Bulgaria and Greece expect to join them in May. However, that all these statements are not yet clear.
Maldives, Seychelles and Cuba are waiting for Russian tourists, as well as recently opened Sri Lanka. In these destinations, everything is relatively safe, i.e. the rules are known and direct transportation is opened.
Mexico and the Dominican Republic also intend to receive Russian tourists, but flights with these countries have not yet been restored.
