Russia, Argentina Sign Visa-Free Agreement

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has signed an agreement allowing visa-free travel between Argentina and his country.

Argentine ambassador to Russia Leopoldo Bravo attended the signing ceremony Wednesday in Moscow. Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana signed the document last week in Buenos Aires.

The agreement will take effect after ratification by parliaments of both countries.

Russia's Itar-Tass news agency says under the agreement, citizens of Russia and Argentina will be able to enter and leave the territories of each others' countries without visas.  They will also be able to travel through or stay there for 90 to 180 days.

Travelers seeking longer visits or those who wish to engage in business will still need visas.
