An intergovernmental visa waiver agreement between Russia and Botswana, signed in June 2019, will go in effect on October 8, Russian Foreign Ministry announced last week.

“Under the agreement, citizens of Russia and Botswana who don’t plan to work, study or permanently reside in the other country, don’t need a visa to enter and stay in the country or travel by transit, provided that their stay does not exceed 30 days,” the statement reads.

According to the ministry, the total duration of stay cannot exceed 90 days in any 180-day period.
