MOSCOW, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian citizens will be able to make short-term trips to Macedonia without a visa or any other special documents between March 16, 2014 and March 15, 2015, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced on Tuesday.
Russia and Macedonia signed an agreement on visa-free mutual visits for the citizens of the two countries on June 19, 2008.
The agreement enables mutual visa-free travel for businessmen, citizens travelling to participate in professional, scientific and technological, educational, cultural and sports activities, short-term training, medical treatment, as well as for private purposes for a period of up to 90 days. Tourists from Russia and Macedonia are allowed to stay in each other's countries without a visa for up to 30 days if they have appropriate documents confirming their travel itinerary, the ministry recalled.
“The Macedonian government decided on February 10, 2014 to allow Russian citizens to visit the country without any special conditions, including those specified in the agreement,” the ministry said.
Russian visitors who are planning a business or private stay of up to 90 days within a period of six months from their time of entry do not need visas, travel vouchers, invitations or guarantee letters, the ministry said. It is enough to have a valid passport and enough money.
The ministry added that Russian citizens, including travel agents, travelling for the purpose of employment would still be required to obtain necessary permits from the Macedonian authorities.
