Visa-free travel between Turkey and Russia to begin in April

Turkish and Russian nationals will be able travel between the two countries without obtaining a visa starting next month.

Officials of the two countries exchanged notes on Wednesday regarding a visa-free regime during Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to Moscow.

Accordingly, visa-free travel will begin on April 16, 30 days after the exchange of notes.

Citizens of both nations will be able to have visa-free travel for 30 days within a 90-day period.

In May 2010, Turkey and Russia signed a visa liberalization agreement during Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's visit to Ankara. Earlier this year, officials of the two countries signed a readmission agreement to take a step forward for completing procedures of visa-free regime.
