Russians May Get Visa-Free Travel to Turkey

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Russia and Turkey might agree on visa-free travel during a visit by President Dmitry Medvedev in May, RIA-Novosti reported Tuesday.

Turkey is one of the most popular tourist destinations for Russians, who currently can obtain a two-month multientry visa upon arrival. Turkish citizens have to apply for Russian visas before they leave their homeland.
