OREANDA-NEWS. About 7-8 million Russian citizens possess overdue debts in the quantities of more than 30 thousand rubles. It is reminded that with such a debt, border guards do not allow travellers go to other states in the event of an injunction to travel, President of the National Association of Professional Collection Agencies (NAPKA) Elman Mehdiyev said in an interview with RIA Novosti. 

A typical Russian debtor of these 7-8 million is a man of 30-35 years old, married and having children. The average general income of a debtor's family is 30-60 thousand rubles, and in large cities it can be much higher, two to three times. Most often, these debters are drivers, sellers and waiters.

"Today, about 7-8 million people are potentially restricted to travel abroad. Thus, every sixth borrower, provided that the lender receives a court decision, will not be able to leave the country," Mehdiyev explained.

According to the existing law, border guards do not allow debtors entered into the database with an injunction with a debt of more than 30 thousand rubles overdue by 90 days to go abroad. Therefore, it is better to plan an overseas trip by checking the debt through the FSSP website 10-14 days before the trip.
