Belarus to expand visa-free zones, simplify entry for foreigners

Belarus plans to simplify entry rules for foreigners willing to enter the country via regional airports and land border checkpoints. 

Belarusian Economy Minister Dmitry Krutoi said, “We plan to expand our visa-free zones, simplify the entry for foreign visitors via regional airports and land border checkpoints.”

The government also hopes the Belarusian-Russian mutual visa recognition agreement will be signed soon. The move will promote business contacts.

“Visa-free travels represent a very important decision that has been made. At present visa-free entry is available in the Minsk National Airport and partially in Brest Oblast and Grodno Oblast. The program has produced serious results over a short period of time,” the economy minister stressed.

Foreigners do not need visas to enter Belarus and stay in the country for up to 30 days, provided they enter the country via the Minsk National Airport.
