The Turkish Cabinet decided to let Russian citizens stay in their country without a visa for up to sixty days rather than just thirty days permitted before. This decision will be valid through December 31, 2011, Turkish Airlines reports.

Meanwhile, an agreement on cancelling visa requirements was signed by Russia and Turkey on April 17, 2011, which meant that Russians coming to Turkey could stay there without a visa for up to thirty days. Those who intended to stay longer had to get a visa or a temporary residence permit, which meant having to produce a lot of papers and waiting for a long time.
