Info i forbindelse med Korona-virus:

Pasvikturist drifter som normalt men er kun tilgjengelig på telefon/epost mellom 10.00 – 14.00 (publikums lokaler for besøkende vil holdes stengt fra mandag 16. Mars)

Siden Norsk institutt for folkehelse har iverksatt strenge forbud mot reiser til og inn i landet blir de fleste av våre utflukter og turer kansellert frem til 31. Mars.

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.
