The government has extended the tourist cashback program until the end of 2021. This was announced on Wednesday by Mikhail Mishustin, speaking with a report in the State Duma, reports Tass. Also, the Prime Minister of Russia in his speech emphasized that the tourism business’ representatives from different regions of the country have repeatedly marked that this program is indeed very popular with tourists.

We recall that the third stage of the state program for subsidizing travel across Russia, "tourist cashback", implemented by the decision of the Government of the Russian Federation in order to develop domestic tourism, began in March this year. Its conditions remain unchanged: the duration of the tour or hotel stay must be at least 2 nights. 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. The money will be transferred to it automatically within five days from the date of payment for the trip.
