Guam - The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will begin implementing parole authority for visitors from Russia beginning January 15 of the New Year. The parole authority means what once took months in processing to plan a trip to Guam will now be made much easier. Russian visitors will still have to certain conditions though and their travel to Guam or the CNMI cannot exceed 45 days.
Governor Eddie Calvo says new money from Russia will lead to new jobs at the very least and the Administration is working with foreign investors and continuing the push for parole authority for china. The Guam Visitors Bureau meanwhile is preparing to enter the Russia market with advertising and tours.
