Guam - Since Homeland Security granted parole authority for Russia, Guam has seen a more than 1,000% increase in visitor arrivals this past February from the country in comparison to last year.  February was the first full month that Russian tourists were allowed to travel here visa-free. 

A delegation from the Guam Visitors Bureau as well as Tourism Committee chairperson Senator Tina Muna Barnes, meanwhile, recently traveled to the country for the Moscow International Travel and Tourism Fair where they promoted the territory.
