Today, Turkey announced that Russians visiting Turkey will not need a visa as they are scraping visas for Russians visiting the country.
The visa is being scraped later this year because about 3 million Russian tourists visit the country annually and trade between the two countries have an annual turnover of about $100 billion a year.
I know Turkey visas do not cost much but why are Russians getting free entry whilst Brits still have to pay? I reckon there are as many Britons in Turkey as there are Russians.
And with the number of British investors in Turkey properties each year, they easily eclipse Russian investors and I for one think Brits should not have Visa restrictions when entering Turkey.
We at Talk about Turkey will love to hear your thoughts on this issue…
