Azer­bai­jan, Serbia abol­ish­ing visa regime

Azer News - - Country Guide - By Rashid Shiri­nov

The de­ci­sion was made at a meet­ing of the Ser­bian govern­ment on May 24.

Un­der the de­ci­sion, the visa-free regime will be valid for Azer­bai­jani cit­i­zens hold­ing or­di­nary pass­ports who will be in Serbia for up to 90 days.

Thus, Azer­bai­jani cit­i­zens will be able to visit 66 coun­tries with­out visas, ac­cord­ing to the rank­ing Pass­port Index 2018. In com­par­i­son with the last year, Azer­bai­jan rose eight places, be­com­ing the 69th in the global rank.

Pre­vi­ously, on May 21, Azer­bai­jan and Serbia also signed the air ser­vices agree­ment. The sign­ing of the agree­ment will pro­vide the air­line com­pa­nies of the two coun­tries with the op­por­tu­nity to open reg­u­lar flights be­tween the two states, and will con­trib­ute to the fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of bi­lat­eral eco­nomic and cul­tural ties be­tween Azer­bai­jan and Serbia.

Diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries were es­tab­lished on Au­gust 21, 1997. Over all these years, the coun­tries have been suc­cess­fully co­op­er­at­ing within in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions and en­joyed sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment of ties in many spheres, such as po­lit­i­cal, eco­nomic, sci­en­tific, cul­tural and hu­man­i­tar­ian fields.
