The Transport Strategy Consortium (TSC) started developing a Concept of visa-free group tours to several countries. The development is based on improving the interaction between governments, between federal agencies and tourist market participants, on facilitation of visa-issuance process, and using modern information technologies.

The development is aimed at solving the following primary critical tasks:

    • creating effective mechanisms of implementing agreements between the Government of the Russian Federation and several other countries on visa-free group tours.
    • improving the efficiency of interaction between participants, providing group tours (tour organizers and government regulators), including introduction of electronic document flow between participants.
    • simplifying procedures required for group tours to other countries.

TSC team engages professionals, highly experienced in international law, tourism, transport, business process analysis, administrative reform, information technologies, and electronic document management to develop the project.

The works and Concept implementation are to result in:

    • increasing the effectiveness of government policy regarding inbound tourism;
    • increasing customer satisfaction in the quality level of government and tourist services, provided by the government and tour operators as part of visa-free group tours;
    • development of international tourism, significant increase of cross-border traffic and accordingly: development of transport infrastructure, increasing tax revenues from tourism, improving the well-being of people employed in the tourist industry, transport and related sectors;

Effective development of a region's transport system requires a balanced strategy that in the short term, in 10, 20 and more years will provide the region with infrastructure, outrunning demand in terms of all modes of transport.
Many large world regions, leaders in transport product volume and transshipment, handling transit and transfer passengers, started out by creating a development strategy for multimodal transport hubs (MTH) based at promising ports, stations, and airports.
Many regions are geographically remote and located away from large transport hubs. They are characterized by poor land transport infrastructure and have many unique characteristics that implicate a peculiar approach to transport planning.
The TSC's areas of expertise include professional strategic planning in IT, development of innovative IT solutions for transport, tourism, transport engineering.
One of the core activities of TSC is the design and turn-key implementation of territory development projects for areas adjacent to transport infrastructure facilities.
The Transport Strategy Center Consortium (TSC) provides expert consulting assistance to regional authorities and transport organizations in developing comprehensive strategies for the development of transport infrastructure projects and attracting public and private funding for their implementation.
