On Monday Azerbaijan’s National Assembly approved agreements to allow passport-free travel between Azerbaijan and Turkey and to establish a joint media platform between the two countries.
AA.com reports that lawmakers discussed a memorandum of understanding between Azerbaijan and Turkey on strategic cooperation regarding media and passport-free travel agreements. A protocol on amendments to an agreement signed in Baku on 25 February 2020 on mutual visa exemption between the two countries was reviewed and adopted in parliament. However, travelers entering Azerbaijan and Turkey from other countries will still be required to present a passport.
The lawmakers also voted to adopt a document expanding media relations, recognizing that the agreement will greatly enhance relations between the two countries.
Citizens of Azerbaijan and Turkey have the right to travel visa-free for 90 days. A citizen of one country wanting to stay in the the other country for more than 90 days (for any reason) should apply with a passport valid for at least 60 days longer than the period required for a residence permit.
