Procedure to obtain compensation for travel to resorts simplified for northerners
The procedure for obtaining compensation for expenses spent on vacation has been simplified for people living in the Far Northern regions. Money spent on travel and baggage transportation to and from the holiday destination can be refunded.
Northerners will also be able to use reporting documents from Yandex.Zapravki or similar applications during their journey, and receive compensation for this, too.
“For example, the rights of workers whose non-working spouses take care of disabled children under 18, or children with group one disabilities have been improved. In particular, a method of compensating this category of northerners for the cost of their travel to and from the holiday destination has been implemented. In addition, a 30-day period has been established, within which the employer is obliged to compensate the employee for travel expenses incurred,” the message on the website of the Murmansk Region Government says.
