Russian citizens will enjoy visa-free travel to the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia starting Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Under the visa-free regime, introduced for the peak tourist season and which would expire on Oct. 31, Russian visitors could stay in Macedonia for a period of up to 90 days.

Russian citizens planning a short-term stay in Macedonia do not have to obtain visas, tourist vouchers or the originals of their invitations at Macedonia's border during this period of time. They need only their travel passports, insurance policies and a sum of money required to cover their expenses during the visit.

The Macedonian visa requirement remains in force for Russian citizens who plan to work or run a business or to study in the country.
