Hello,

Would anybody be able to tell me the cost of a Visa -all in -for a short one, or two, night visit to Minsk from the UK? I have searched online but have found two separate figures.

Many thanks in advance.

I am travelling to Minsk next week and I would like to do a day trip to Njasviz and Mir. Has anyone done this with a combination of public transportation and taxi, e.g. with train/bus to one of these places, with a taxi to the other and then back to Minsk with train or bus? Is this an option at all? Or should I rather go with a tour? Any recommendations? I could also join a tour in Russian even though I am not fluent at all.

Also I would like to visit Chatyn. Has anyone done it by bus + hiking…

I have just got my visa from the London embassy. I took it in one Thursday and collected it the following Thursday. Cost £50 (pay cash or debit card). When I handed it in there was initially a problem because the insurance papers did not have the address of the insurance company or the amount of cover provided by the policy clearly stated on the front page. Once I had pointed out this info the embassy person the application was accepted. The queue was about 10 people long so I had to wait…

OK
Visa.
It is the most obvious question on the Belarus part of TT.
Still I need some quick info since I´m in a hurry.

There are 2 types of ways to go:
Staying up to 10 days you need "only" confirmation on hotel/hostel.
Or - if staying longer or if you can´t get the proper confirmation you must get a "visa support letter".

My question is: what is needed for visa when it comes to the "reservation" of hotel/hostel?
How strict are the visa authorities on the letter from hotel/hostel???

Your info will…

I will be off to Belarus in a few months and seems I need to provide details of accomodation in the country. I am looking at traveling from Brest-Vitebsk on the overnight sleeper train. Has anyone any experience of what to write down for accomodation to show the embassy for that night? Would "over night sleeping on train" work?!

Thanks!

Hello, i have a question for my transit visa for 2 days. I will cross the border from LTU to BLR at 10 in the morning and i want to go to kiev the day after that. But it is a problem: the bus will cross the border to UKR after the midnight.
I don't know if the visa is available only for these 2 days or it is available for 48 hours.
In your opinion, it is possibly to have problems with the border officers if i will be there with 2 or 3 hours late after midnight?
Thanks

Hello,

Sorry to post but I am getting conflicting information.

I am a British citizen. I would like to get a short term visa for Belarus in Kiev. I only have three days to do this. Is this possible? What is the cost?

Also, any experience on the Kiev to Minsk and Minsk to Vilnius train?

If I can't get the visa, I can go to Poland. But, it would be nice to go to Belarus.

Good morning all.

I'm planning a trip in May starting in Finland and ending in Belarus.
By being a EU-citizen I'm VISA-free on the Baltic countries except for Belarus.

I've read this article where it is mentioned that the invitation letter has been dropped for some applications 8not mentioned for which countries):

And then clicking on the below I do not see the "invitation letter" being requested:
