Siberia restrictions

CHITA — The parliament of Chita Region on the Chinese border has passed a law restricting visits by foreigners to 15 days. All foreigners staying longer than three days in the region will be required to register with the local militia. Though the law is aimed mainly at curbing forays by Chinese petty traders and smugglers, it will affect all foreigners. A similar law has been passed in the more westerly Omsk Region, bordering on Kazakhstan.
