The regime of the border zone was removed from some areas of the Sakhalin Oblast

Some of the Kuril islands are exempted from the border regime

The regime of the border zone was removed from some areas of the Sakhalin Oblast
In the Sakhalin Region, the territory in which the border regime operates is substantially adjusted. According to the message of the FSB border management in the Sakhalin region, the list of territories exempted from the border regime includes the islands of Paramushir, Kunashir, Moneron, Tyuleniy Island and Shikotan.

Also in the Kurilsk urban district, the city of Kurilsk is excluded from the border zone, as well as the Kurilsk highway - Iturup airport and the territory of Iturup airport itself. The territory of the airport, the urban-type settlement Yuzhno-Kurilsk and the road to Golovnino are excluded from the South Kuril urban district. Also, the border zone was removed in some parts of the island of Shumshu and the lakes Bitobi. The regional government reported that such changes will have a good impact on the development of tourism in the region. The Kuril Islands are in demand among wealthy Russian and foreign tourists, while the tourist flow is measured in just hundreds of people. The removal of the border regime will greatly simplify the visit to the islands.

Also, the elimination of restrictions will help entrepreneurs and investors to participate in the development of tourism business in designated areas. Previously, to get a work permit and organize their own business, it took much more time to go to implement bureaucratic procedures, but now the administrative barriers have been lifted. By the way, the presence of tourists will allow receiving additional funds for significant infrastructure projects that have been waiting for implementation for a long time and, in the future, after implementation, they themselves should increase the attractiveness of the area to visit.
