Russia to bring new law to ensure foreigners` hospitality

Russia will bring a new law under which the hosts can be punished if they fail to take proper care of their guests from abroad.



Moscow: In order to ensure all basic facilities for foreign visitors in the country, Russia will bring a new law under which the hosts can be punished if they fail to take proper care of their guests from abroad.

The government has submitted a draft law to the Duma introducing administrative responsibility for Russians who fail to receive foreign guests properly. Administrative responsibility means a person could be fined or receive a warning.

Under the draft law, Russian hosts should be punished for not being able to provide the foreign guests they invite with lodging, medical services and financial aid, the Russian lower house has said.
The existing law regarding the rights of foreign nationals in Russia envisages that the "inviting party" should guarantee that a foreign guest is offered lodging, medical services and financial aid.

However, the law has no provision of fixing responsibility on the host if these conditions are not provided.
