Visa-free Stay In Turkey Has Been Prolonged For Russian Citizens

The time period of visa-free stay in Turkey for Russian citizens has been prolonged from 60 to 90 days. 

In the spring of 2011, Turkey and Russia mutually canceled visas for trips up to 30 days. The term of visa-free stay of Russians in Turkey was extended in April 2014 from 30 to 60 days. At the same time, from January 1, 2015, a rule was introduced according to which a Russian citizen's passport must be valid for at least four months from the time of entry into Turkey.

Since January 1, 2016, Russia has canceled the visa-free regime for Turkish citizens. This was one of the sanctions measures taken as a response to the Russian-made Su-24 bomber shot down by the Turkish Air Force in October 2015. Turkey did not introduce retaliatory measures on visas for Russians.

In 2015, Turkey was the most popular foreign destination for the beach holiday of Russians. There were about 3 million tourists from Russia. In 2017, the authorities are waiting for the restoration of this flow.
