Mutual visa-free entry between Belarus and Argentina will come into force starting 19 May, the embassy of Belarus in Argentina reported.
“Visa-free entry for citizens of the Argentine Republic opens on 19 May, 2017,” a note on the embassy’s website reads.
“Argentinian citizens who are holders of general civil passports can enter, transit and temporarily stay in the territory of Belarus without a visa for a period not exceeding 90 days from the date of the first entry during a calendar year”.
The same rule applies to Belarusian citizens travelling to Argentina.
At the same time, Belarus and Argentina have agreed to retain the right to refuse entry to citizens of the other state or shorten their period of stay in case such persons are considered undesirable or pose a threat to public security or order.
From now on, Belarusian citizens can enter five South American countries without a visa –Argentina, Brazil (for up to 90 days), Ecuador (for up to 30 days), Peru (for up to 183 days for tourism) and Venezuela (for up to 90 days).
Citizens of Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador and Venezuela can also enter Belarus visa-free, while citizens of Peru have to apply for a visa.
