The proposal was made by the deputies of St. Petersburg Alexey Makarov and Denis Chetyrbok. According to their draft, federal agencies should develop compulsory certification of guides and guides at the All-Russian level, and the right to conduct it and identify illegal immigrants will be granted to officials at the regional level. The deputies who are not certified guides want to be fined in the amount of 20 thousand to 100 thousand rubles. and expelled from the country.
In some cases, deputies allow foreigners to work as guides in Russia. "We propose to establish that the services of guides, guides and guide-interpreters are provided only by citizens of the Russian Federation. Of course, we have the provisions of the Constitution, therefore, if an international agreement provides otherwise, then services can be provided by foreign citizens and stateless persons", - quoted Regnum Alexey Makarov.
According to experts, in this case we are talking about the proposal of Rossotrudnichestvo about the specialized training of Chinese guides for work in Russia with tourists from the PRC.
It should be noted that foreigners in the Kingdom of Thailand for a long time can not work as guides officially, except in special cases. Usually, the employer draws them up as translators.
