    A mutual visa-free regime came into effect between Russia and Montenegro on Friday.

    MOSCOW, November 21 (RIA Novosti) - A mutual visa-free regime came into effect between Russia and Montenegro on Friday.

    "The agreement enables mutual visa-free travel for Russian and Montenegrin residents who hold valid foreign passports for up to 30 days," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

    Those who have temporary or permanent residence permits in Russia or Montenegro will also be able travel without visas, but will be unaffected by the 30-day time limit.

    Diplomats or citizens making short business trips will be able to stay for 90 days visa-free in either country.

    However, Russians and Montenegrins seeking employment or education will have to obtain a visa, the Foreign Ministry said.

    In the Balkans, Russia also enjoys visa-free travel regime with Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia.
