MOSCOW, April 1 (Itar-Tass) – A Russian-Croatian agreement on reciprocal trips by citizens signed on March 2, 2010 has come in force.
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the new visa agreement between Russia and Croatia will replace the old document signed by the governments of the USSR and the Federal Executive Council of the Assembly of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia on October 31, 1989.
The new agreement establishes basically a visa travel regime for citizens of the two countries and facilitates procedures of issuing single visas for a period of up to 90 days on the basis of direct appeals of receiving organizations without presentation of invitation letters as provided for by the legislations of Russia and Croatia.
These visa regulations apply to members of official delegations, entrepreneurs, academics, cultural figures and workers of education as well as students and schoolchildren who participate in exchange programs, participants in international sport events and exchange programs organized by twin cities.
Visas will be issued upon submission of a standard document issued by a tourist organization that has a license to operate in the territory of its home, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Simplified regulations for receiving multiple visas for a period of up to one year will be introduced for entrepreneurs who go on regular business trips. Holders of diplomatic and administrative passports won’t need visas if they travel for a period of up to 90 days in the course of six months; a visa-free regime will be introduced for employees of diplomatic missions, consular departments and offices of international organizations and their families for the entire period of accreditation.
The crews of Russian and Croatian airliners and sea vessels won’t need entry visas. The agreement sets the following deadlines for considering visa applications: 2-5 working days for single visas and up to 14 days for multiple visas. Persons who need to travel urgently in connection with unexpected circumstances may receive visas on the day of application.
