State Border Committee: No limit on number of visa-free entries to Belarus

There is no limit on the number of five-day visa-free visits to Belarus for foreign nationals, Oleg Lyashuk, the head of the border control division of the State Border Committee of Belarus, told a press briefing at BelTA’s press center on 10 January.

“Foreign citizens can use this opportunity to visit our beautiful country as many times as they want, provided they follow the established rules,” Oleg Lyashuk said.

It was reported earlier that on 9 January Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko signed decree No. 8, which stipulates how foreign citizens can enter or leave the country without visas. The document allows citizens of 80 countries to stay in Belarus for at most five days without visas, provided they cross the state border in the Minsk National Airport. The new regulations apply to 39 countries in Europe, including the entire European Union, as well as Brazil, Indonesia, the USA, Japan, and other countries.
