Turkey, Azerbaijan scrap visa requirement for travel

Turkey and Azerbaijan have abolished visa requirements for travel between the two countries and the measure will take effect April 1st.
Citizens from the two countries crossing respective borders, will be able to do so without needing their passports, using their ID cards instead, reports say citing the Turkish foreign ministry.
“The Protocol signed on December 10, 2020, between the Republic of Turkey and the Republic of Azerbaijan, which allows both countries’ citizens to travel using their national identity cards, will enter into force on April 1, 2021,” the ministry said in a statement.
The new practice according to the statement, starting on Thursday would “strengthen our already existing strong ties with Azerbaijan as expressed in the motto ‘one nation, two states”.
