Visa-Waiver Agreement between Russia and Israel
The Israeli side on June 20 informed the Russian MFA of the completion of national procedures necessary for the entry into force of the Agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of the State of Israel on Mutual Abolition of Visa Requirements, signed on March 20, 2008. The Russian side had accomplished this work earlier – on March 28, 2008.
Thus, in accordance with Article 9, item 1 of this Agreement it will be in place 90 days after the date of receipt of the last written notification of the fulfillment by both sides of all necessary intrastate procedures; that is before September 20, 2008.
Moscow presumes that the entry into force of this Agreement will give an additional weighty impulse to the development of Russian-Israeli relations in the most diverse fields, including human contacts and business partnership.
