MOSCOW, April 5 – RIA Novosti. Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on fines of up to 100 thousand rubles for violations in the formation of a unified federal register of travel agents and work without entering data into it. The corresponding document was published on the official Internet portal of legal information.
Earlier this year, the head of state adopted and signed the law on the federal register of travel agents, according to which travel agents will be able to sell the products of a particular operator only after concluding an agreement with him and making a corresponding entry in the register. The law will come into effect on January 1, 2022.
Now administrative liability is introduced for non-compliance with this law. For non-entry by a tour operator of information about its travel agents in the register, as well as the provision of incorrect data or their introduction with violations, officials will face a fine from 10 to 30 thousand rubles, legal entities – from 50 to 100 thousand.
Similar sanctions will apply to travel agents if they promote or sell a tourist product without an entry in the register on the conclusion of an appropriate agreement with the operator, and also if they, without having the right to do so, involve third parties in the promotion or sales.
For the implementation of travel agency activities by a person whose information is not in the register, there will be a smaller fine – for officials from 3 to 5 thousand rubles, for legal entities – from 20 to 30 thousand. The same punishment is established for a travel agent if he attracted another agent for the implementation of the contract with the tour operator, information about which is not in the register.
