Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Thursday that ends visa requirements for Turkish residents retaining special and service passports, the country-run Anadolu Agency pronounced, citing the Russian government’s official website.
The decree is valid as of Thursday, Anadolu said.
Turkish diplomats and some public servants utilize the passports stated in the decree.
Ankara and Moscow had been negotiating over implementing all the visa agreement articles hammered out in 2010, which presented visa-unfastened travel to Russia for all Turks. The Russian Su-24 fighter jet downing through the Turkish Air Force in 2015 introduced cooperation between Moscow and Ankara, crashing to a halt that year. Moscow imposed sanctions targeting Turkey’s financial system and stopped the visa-free journey.
Since then, the two countries have been progressively drawn collectively, putting off traces of the sooner rift and increasing cooperation. In February, Putin signed a decree to lift visa necessities for Turkish carrier passport holders and truck drivers traveling to Russia.

Types of Russian Visa
If you need to be precise, there are 11 distinct Russian visa types:
* Diplomatic visa,
* Guest/Private Visit visa,
* Tourism visa,
* Work visa,
* Business/Commercial Visit visa,
* Student/Education visa,
* Government Business visa,
* Humanitarian visa,
* Transit Visa (valid as much as 72 hours),
* Temporary Stay visa,
* Refugee visa.
Each visa kind corresponds to the motive of your visit. During my professional enjoy, I’ve observed that around 90 of all issued Russian visas fall below TWO principal visa classes: Tourist Visa is your first pick for quick, as much as 30-day, one-time visits to Russia even if you cross for reasons apart from tourism (e.G., Business meetings, conferences, traveling relatives, and so on.) Unfortunately, you will want a Business Visa if you intend to stay beyond 30 days. According to Russian bureaucracy, a TOURIST visa may be obtained with a respectable invitation/sponsorship/guide letter (extra on this inside the subsequent article) from a hotel or a travel organization registered with the Department of Consular Service at the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (abbreviated as MFA). The identical regulation says it is illegal for a qualified travel agency or a motel to offer you an invite if you aren’t going to stay in an inn. Luckily, this word of regulation is damaged more frequently than followed. Certainly, all journey groups can get you a visa sponsorship report and later sign your Russian visa without booking an unmarried night time in an inn. The same holds for inns; they’ll check in your key for the nights you live with them and your whole journey. Just consider inviting! (more approximately registration in upcoming articles)
