MOSCOW, June 11 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian-Latvian agreement on simplified cross-border travel for residents of border districts of the two countries goes into effect, says a Tuesday report of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
The report says that the agreement signed on December 20, 2010 in Moscow went into effect on June 6.
Under the agreement trips can be made by residents of border territories on presenting a regular passport with permission for local cross-border travel issued by consular departments of the states free of charge for a term of from one to two years on the basis of the lists of residents of border territories drawn up by local self-government bodies. The total duration of the stay on the border territory should not exceed 90 days in each six-month period.
“Border territories include municipal entities of Russia and Latvia adjoining the border and situated in a zone not farther than 30 kilometers away from it. If part of such an entity is located in a zone 30 to 50 kilometers away from the border, its territory is also regarded as a border territory,” a source in the ministry explained. On the Russian part, the agreement applies to the cities of Pechory, Sebezh, Pytalovo, Palkino, Ostrov, Krasnogorodsk and related districts of the Pskov region.
