As agreed at the Turkey-Russian Federation Consular Consultations of 1 November 2018, we welcome President Putin’s signing today (6 February) the Presidential Decision to abolish visas for Turkish special and service passport holders and for international transport drivers.

We are in consultation with the Foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation on the implementation of the decision as soon as possible.

We expect that the Visa Waiver Agreement of 2010 to be implemented in full as soon as possible and that regular Turkish passport holders will also be exempt from visa.
