Murmansk is an exciting city, only 220 km from Kirkenes. It is the largest city north of the Arctic Circle and has 310.000 innhabitants.

Turer til Russland/Visum:

Helsedirektoratet oppfordrer alle til å unngå fritidsreiser og reiser som ikke er strengt nødvendige.

Pasvikturist anbefaler derfor alle med å avvente å planlegge reiser til Russland (dvs avvente med visum søknader, billett bestillinger osv).

De søknader som allerede er innlevert kan ikke trekkes tilbake. Billetter som allerede er bestilt kan ikke avbestilles kostnadsfritt.

Vi håper situasjonen vil roe seg ned og at vi kan starte vår virksomhet som vanlig så fort som mulig.
