For years, the name “Belarus” has not been on every tourist’s lips. Despite its pristine nature, rich Soviet legacy, developing agritourism and general safety for travelers, the country didn’t receive the attention it’s worth of. But things are going to change: the Republic of Belarus has opened its borders and is now visa-free for tourist from a number of states (including the UK), who travel by plane.

On February, 9 during a meeting in London AITO welcomed another associated member – the Republican union of tourism industry (RUTI), an organization that consolidates tour operators, DMCs, hotels and tourist attractions from Belarus.

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has signed Decree No. 300 “On Establishing a Visa-Free Procedure for Entry and Exit of Foreign Citizens”, the press service of the president reports.

The previously separate Brest and Grodno visa-free zones for tourist and recreation purposes are now combined into a unified Brest-Grodno visa-free territory. It includes five districts: Brest, Volkovysk, Grodno, Lida and Shchuchin.

In this region, the period of stay without a visa is increased to 15 days for citizens of 73 countries. In addition, it will be possible to enter the country through two additional checkpoints: Bieniakoni and Berestovitsa.

Foreigners will be able to travel without visas throughout the western regions, provided that they are part of organized tourist groups on routes that provide for a visit to the visa-free territory of Brest – Grodno.

The decree comes in force three months after its official publication.

At the same time, a visa-free entry procedure for citizens of 74 states to Belarus for up to 30 days via Minsk National Airport is maintained, which is provided for by decree of January 9, 2017 No. 8 (as amended, effective July 24, 2018).
