Month of May traditionally begins the vacation season for Russians, but over 2 mln of Russian citizen can`t travel abroad because of their debts. 40% of them have overdue credits, 20% are not paying alimony, 10% didn`t pay taxes or penalties, 5% didn`t pay communal services on time. The number of Russians, who can`t travel abroad because of debts, increased dramatically during a year. In 2016 there were only 1,2 mln of them.
Russian legislation allows to limit the ability to travel for those who have debts. For example, the passport control officers must stop at passport control line any citizen who has a debt over 10 000 rub. Meanwhile, by the estimation of the members of credit market (banks and MFC`s), there are much more of potentially not travelling citizen – 7,6 mln. This figure means 9% of economically active population of Russia. To avoid problems with border crossing, it is enough to pay the debt and to show a passport control officer the proof of payment.
