At a ceremony to welcome a delegation of 325 international tourists, including 226 Russians, with 'vaccine passports' to Viet Nam's Khanh Hoa province on December 26, 2021.
Russian authorities advise citizens not to travel to countries that have imposed sanctions and restrictions on Russia, because staying there can bring risks to their return to the homeland in a timely and safe manner. The tourism agency believes that some destinations, including several Latin American countries, are no longer available to local tourists due to restrictions on airspace by the EU and Canada.
It also recommended tour operators to suspend the sale of tours to countries that have imposed sanctions on Russia, as well as to Caribbean nations because related air routes have to go through the closed airspace of the EU and Canada.
