Belarus’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs has suggested introducing electronic visas for third-country nationals, including those who are not exempt from visa requirements.
Belarus Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told the media after a meeting with Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs in Minsk.
“As you know, a 30-day visa-free regime has been introduced for citizens of nearly 80 countries. We are not going to stop at this and are working on further steps.
We have prepared the proposals for the government on electronic visas for nationals of third countries,” Vladimir Makei said on Wednesday, 25 July.
According to the minister, in case such a decision is made, the project may be launched within a year and a half.
Recall that in January 2017 Belarus opened visa-free entry to citizens of 80 countries via Minsk National Airport. The news came as a bombshell and spread like a wildfire.
A year after the duration of visa-free stay for those coming to Belarus via Minsk National Airport was extended to up to 30 days. Did Belarus see crowds of tourists?
