Travel agencies still have no information about connecting to the system
Tour operators explained whether Russians are required to issue electronic tickets from September 1
The Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) has clarified whether Russians should issue e-tickets with a QR code from September 1.
This is the requirement of the new law on tourism. All information about travelers and the tours they have purchased will be loaded into the system. Based on the results of data processing, the tourists themselves will be given a QR code with information about the trip: tour operator data, air tickets, route, tour dates, hotel addresses. To receive services, travelers will have to show this code.
Earlier, travel agencies spoke categorically against the innovation. It turned out that they still do not have information about connecting to the system, the regulations for its work have not been approved. At the same time, a draft law has already been developed on fines of up to 1 million rubles for violation by a travel agency of the procedure and terms for the formation of an electronic voucher. That is, there is no system yet, but they already want to fine for non-fulfillment of its requirements.
The ATOR explains that from September 1, the system begins to work on a voluntary test basis. Until March-September 2023, no fines will be imposed.
