BELARUS SCRAPS VISAS FOR CITIZENS OF 80 COUNTRIES

BELARUS SCRAPS VISAS FOR CITIZENS OF 80 COUNTRIES
16.01.2017

In an attempt to make the country more accessible and boost international tourism, the authorities in Belarus have scrapped visa requirements for foreign citizens from 80 nations to stay in the country for up to five days. The visa-free entry will apply to the citizens of 39 European countries, including all EU member states, as well as Brazil, Indonesia, the USA, Japan and other nations. To enter Belarus visa-free, foreigners will need to have a valid passport or other travel document, a sum of money equivalent of 42 Belarusian roubles for each day of their stay (ca. 20 EUR) and medical insurance valid in Belarus. Citizens of a number of countries including India, China and Vietnam must also have a valid multiple visa to any EU member state or Schengen country as well as tickets confirming they will leave from Minsk National Airport within five days of the date of entry. The procedure is valid only for guests arriving and departing from Minsk National Airport and does not apply to visitors arriving or departing directly between Belarus and Russia. The move opens up new possibilities for city breaks and short trips to Belarus. For the last two decades, Via Hansa has been receiving a sizeable number of guests for Belarus. The capital Minsk is a lively and bustling city of two million inhabitants and is undoubtedly one of the safest and cleanest cities in Europe. There is plenty to see and the last decade has seen a significant development of hotels, restaurants and other infrastructure. Contact one of our sales offices for an exciting offer for Belarus.
