MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The decision was made on behalf of the President of Russia.
Order of April 27, 2021 No. 1097-r
Another 4.7 billion rubles will be allocated for the new stage of the tourist cashback program. This order was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
The funds will be used to reimburse part of the costs for those traveling in Russia. Refund amount – 20% of the tour cost, but not more than 20 thousand rubles. Cashback is credited only for trips paid for with a Mir card, and the money is credited to it automatically within five days from the date of payment for the trip.
The new stage of the program began on March 18 and, on the instructions of the President of Russia, will last until the end of this year. Additional funding has already been allocated for its implementation last month.
Tourist cashback was launched in 2020. Taking into account the previous stages, about 1 million Russians took advantage of the program, while receiving a refund in the amount of about 4 billion rubles.
The signed document changes Government decree of March 13, 2021 No. 590-r.
