Entering Belarus as a foreigner has different requirements depending on where you are from. Belarus allows some foreigners, like Chinese citizens, to enter the country anywhere from 30 days without a visa. Residents from other countries, like the United States, for example, have visa-free access but only when entering and leaving Belarus through the Minsk National Airport.

Like most countries, Belarus has announced they will begin issuing eVisas starting in 2020. The eVisa process is really simple and much faster to process than going to an embassy or consulate. So, come back to iVisa to get yours.
