The visa regime between Azerbaijan and Serbia will be abolished from June 2, 2018, the Serbian Foreign Ministry informed on May 30.
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.
