The visa regime may be abolished between Switzerland and Azerbaijan, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan, Mahmud Mammadguliyev said on August 1.

He underscored that the two countries have completed the negotiations on the visa regime and readmission.

Once this process is completed, the holders of diplomatic and service passports will be able to travel without visa, while the number of the required documents and the fee will be reduced for the ordinary citizens.
