The Russian-Cuban agreement on visa regime facilitation, under which the visa-free stay will be extended for up to 90 days, will come into force on Dec. 2.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said this in a statement on Friday.
He stated that ”on Dec. 21, 2018, the agreement between the Russian Government and the government of the Republic of Cuba,
envisaging abolition of visa procedures for mutual trips of Russian and Cuban nationals, which was signed in Moscow on May 22,
2018, will come into force.”
The ministry specified that the new agreement would replace the one signed in December 1993, and would extend the visa-free
stay for up to 90 days from the current 30 days, during each 180-days period starting from the date of the first entry.
“Individuals willing to stay or to live on the territory of another state for more than 90 calendar days, or engage in labour or
commercial activities there, should get a related visa in a diplomatic mission or a consular office of this state in compliance
with the legislation of the host state,’’ the ministry said.
