Turkey has prolonged the visa-free regime for citizens of Russia
The Russians may be in the Republic without a visa for 90 days.
MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Turkish authorities extended the visa-free regime for citizens of Russia up to 90 days. This was announced by the Minister of foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu, reports the Anatolian Agency.
“We extended the time within which Russians can stay in Turkey without a visa, with 60 to 90 days,” said Cavusoglu.
In November 2015, after the incident with the downed Turkish air force Russian su-24 bomber Russia has suspended the visa-free regime with Turkey. However, Ankara did not respond.
10 March 2017 Council meeting of the high level cooperation of Russia and Turkey, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he considered it necessary to make additional efforts for the introduction of a visa-free regime between the two countries. Then he noted that work was being done and expressed the hope that this issue will be resolved in the near future. The President of Russia Vladimir Putin in his turn stressed that the ban on recruitment of workers from Turkey will be removed soon.
