The Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry says visas for citizens of the two countries will not be required for travel of up to 60 days.


However travelers need international passports to cross the two countries' borders and should register with local authorities at their temporary place of residence.


Only Russia recognizes Kyrgyzstan's internal passport as a travel document.
