About International Federation of Autotourism

The International Federation of Autotourism (IFA) was founded in 2002 with the goal of creating a society in which auto tourism transcends geographical and cultural boundaries, promotes the exchange of cultural experiences and promotes sustainable travel experiences for all.

IFA activities are aimed at establishing a global community of motor tourists, where the diversity of cultures and geographies serves as a source of mutual understanding and exchange of experiences. This promotes auto tourism as a means of cultural enrichment and stimulates intercultural dialogue.

IFA is registered with the Ministry of Justice with identification number No. 020340011237. The international activities of the Federation extend to the territory of Central Asia, Europe and the MENA region.

  • Certification, accreditation of associations and organizations related to auto-tourism;

  • Issuance of permits for members of the federation in the auto-tourism industry;

  • Registration of issued certificates;
