Belarus extends visa-free entry from five to 30 days

July 24, 2018


If you are a citizen of one of the 80 countries that has 5-day visa-free access to Belarus and want to spend more time exploring the country, then there’s good news for you. Belarus Telegraph Agency reports that President Alexander Lukashenko has signed a decree on 24 July, extending the visa-free entry period to 30 days provided foreign nationals cross the border at the Minsk National Airport.

Rules applying to citizens of which countries are eligible can be found here. And seems like this list and the rules therein has not changed with the new decree.

The visa-free access rules do not apply to persons arriving in Belarus from or to Russia by air as these are considered internal flights, with no border controls. Visa-free entry does not also apply to foreigners coming to Belarus to work, do business, or study, if the period of activity exceeds 30 days.

The visa-free stay cannot be extended beyond 30 days. Unlike the existing 5-day visa-free access, if you plan to spend more than five days in Belarus then you should register with the internal affairs bodies at the address you’re staying. If you’re staying in a hotel, hostel, health resort or other accommodation, then the management of the above-mentioned facilities shall be responsible for the registration with the internal affairs bodies. So make sure they do this!
