Russian Government Endorses Visa-Waiver Agreement for Dominica Passport Holders
August 30, 2018 - News Dominica

Holders of Dominica passports will soon be able to enjoy visa-free travel to Russia, according to the Russian news agency TASS which reported that the Russian government has endorsed a visa-waiver agreement with the Caribbean nation.

The draft agreement states that Russian citizens will be able visit Dominica and Dominican citizens to visit Russia without visas for up to 90 days within any 180-day period.

According to the report, the agreement was drafted by the Russian Foreign Ministry and the Russian Cabinet and is expected to boost ties between the two countries.

According to TASS: “The draft agreement waives visas for holders of Russian passports valid abroad, including diplomatic and service passports, and citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica who hold diplomatic, service and regular passports, provided their stay does not exceed 90 days in any 180-day period.”

At the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum held in June 2017, Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, had raised the idea of a visa-free regime between the two countries in order to fully realize the benefits to be gained from relationships currently being built.

“We have to advance the visa-free access to our countries, for us to see the benefits of this type of integration,” he said. “We must have the ease of movement in order for us to advance our economic cooperation. From the Caribbean standpoint, we are prepared to engage in this visa-free regime that would enhance our relationship and enhance our business opportunities.”

A timeline for implementation of the draft agreement is due to be announced soon.
