Foreign traveller restrictions around Umba

Parts of the seashore around Umba are off limits to foreigners.

Official instruction for foreigners wishing to visit Umba >>

Permits can be obtained in Murmanks. I believe you can stay in Umba up to 24 hours without a permit, or need to stay away from 1km strip along the sea.

I’ll be checking and double checking the details if there is an interest in it on the part of the travelling public.

Thanks Vasya Lozhkin for once again providing a fitting illustration for my concept

Prison visits are among my services. I wish I could put a smiley here but it is getting serious. And I can’t even say “fucking serious” because “fuck” in mass media has been outlawed, and a pathetic little website like mine falls under the definitions.

    • What about that stretch of coast 15-20km east from Umba? Is is an absolute no or are foreigners only prohibited from staying their overnight too?

        • Russia has become a paranoid, closed country, like Enver Hoxha’s Albania.

          That’s why no one visits there.

      • re: “prohibited from staying overnight”

        That’s typical.

        The reason no one visits there is it’s a huge hassle. The 30 days tourist visa isn’t worth the trouble and expense.

        Simply put, the Russian government doesn’t want any foreigners to visit Russia. It’s become a paranoid, closed country, like Enver Hoxha’s Albania.
