MOSCOW, 18 November (BelTA) – The decision on the Belarusian-Russian agreement on mutual visa recognition can be taken in the near future, Belarus' Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told the media after the joint ministerial meeting in Moscow on 18 November, BelTA has learned.

“The agreement is almost ready. I am convinced that the decision on it can be adopted in the near future,” Vladimir Makei said.

Vladimir Makei added that he discussed the signing of the agreement with Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov at today's ministerial meeting.

As it has been reported, the agreement on mutual recognition of visas will create legal conditions for third-country citizens to travel in the Union State using a visa obtained from either Belarus or Russia. Once the document comes into force, foreign nationals will not need to obtain two visas to travel to Belarus and Russia. The document implies that foreigners who have a visa of either country can enter, travel and stay in the territory of the other country for the duration of the visa.
