Guam - While efforts continue to secure parole authority for China visitors to Guam, the recent approval for Russia has got the Guam Visitors Bureau working to find ways to attract Russian tourists. GVB deputy general manager Nate Denight says the board of directors during this week's meeting discussed strategies and funding options to handle the new market that hopes to bring more than 2,000 additional visitors to Guam.

He told KUAM News, we've had some experience in Russia so we will reach out to our travel partners there, we work with a lot of travel agents and different industry parents to establish those contacts and see how we can help them promote Guam because they will be the one's ultimately selling Guam so we got to see what kind of market and sale strategies we will use in Russia."

He adds for the month of November, Guam got 2,000 additional visitors from Taiwan, and travelers from Korea went up 15%. He says visitor arrivals from Japan are also expected to go up, as charter flights will begin.
