Press Release Regarding The Entry Into Force Of The Agreement On Visa Abolition Between Turkey And Belarus , 02.06.2014

No: 180, 2 June 2014

“The Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Turkey and the Government of the Republic of Belarus on the Mutual Abolition of Visas”, which was signed on 29 March 2013 in Minsk, entered into force on 1 June 2014. With this Agreement, citizens of both countries will be exempted from visa requirement for a period of 30 days regardless of the type of their passports.

This Agreement is considered as an important step which will contribute to the strengthening of relations between Turkey and Belarus. We believe that mutual visa exemption, which is a concrete reflection of our political relations that have recently gained impetus through high-level visits, will strengthen the commercial, human and cultural aspects of our relations with Belarus.
