Despite sanctions: Alaska and Chukotka set visa-free travel

Russian Chukotka residents and those from American Alaska face pleasant changes while traveling.

From now on, people of these regions can enter the US and Russia without visas.

Such a decision was taken after an Alaskan wished to visit Chukotka, and the American Department of the Bering Strait Regional Commission claimed it was ready to give a special notification allowing him to visit the Russian peninsula without a visa.

A corresponding agreement on Bering Strait crossing between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was signed in 1989.

A tourist should be native person of one of the two regions. The only documents required are the notification and national identity document.
