Hello again from Tokyo - Another question on visa :)

I am thinking to apply for tourist visa with LOI from hotel. Assuming I have reservation for 5 nights from June/5-10, what happens if I arrive on June/6, and leave on 11 after staying in the country for 5 nights? What if I stay at this hotel only for 3 nights and stay at another for 2 nights?
I am planning to come by night train from Warsaw, and leave toward Riga, and I'll arrange the ticket locally after I arrive there. In addition, there…

Hello from Tokyo. I am planning my first visit to Belarus this summer. Belarus is my very last country in Europe, simply due to requirement for visa and registration.

I read in MOF website that tells I need register if I am staying for over 5 days. Does this mean;
a) '5 days whereever in Belarus', '5 days in Minsk', '5 days in one city' or something else?
b) '5 calender days', '120 hours'
c) total days in Belarus must much up with total of individual registration (if dates are exactly specified)?

Does anyone know if it's possible to get a transit visa at the Belarus embassy in London (as opposed to going through an agency), and if it's possible, how much does it cost?

Within the past 3 weeks, I've sent that embassy 3 e-mails, plus I've phoned them God knows how many times. The phone just rings, and rings and rings, ............

Any ideas anyone?

I am set to go to Belarus tomorrow morning. I have everything ready, and since my country (Norway) doesn't have a Belarus embassy, I can apply for a visa at the airport in Minsk (and I have confirmed this with the airport). I got my letter of invitation from my hostel over a week ago, and they said they also delivered the letter of invitation to the airport, like they are supposed to.

This morning the hostel suddenly sends me a mail saying that they regret to inform me that the government has…

What's the deal with couchsurfing in Belarus? Are potential hosts supposed to provide some sort of invitation or something?

If so, what happens if I and a host want to extend my stay? Does the host have to provide another invitation letter?

So, if I do go to Belarus, am I supposed to have invitation letters for every one of my nights in Belarus, whether it be from one host, multiple hosts, hotels, hostels, guest-houses, whatever? Is that correct?

Ideally, I'd just rather be in Vilnius, and…

Hey, had anyone exchanged GBP to belarusian rubels? How does it look like in smaller cities? I'm going to Belarus from Poland, crossing the border in Białowieża and I will have some small PLN notes for exchange before I go to Minsk.

As some of you might know it is not possible to get a visa for Belarus here in Sweden. I want to go to Warsaw soon and Belarus is very interesting for me to visit. So I will go to Warsaw and try to get a visa for Belarus there. Is there anyone here who recently applied for a Belarus visa in Warsaw that can share the experience?

What do I need to bring to the embassy in Warsaw? Is a printed hotel booking in Minsk from booking.com and my travel insurance enough?

Hi

I am going to be in Belarus for a couple of weeks and wanted some advice on what I might bring to give as small gifts to people I meet en route - are there any items in short supply that would be particularly welcome, eg sweets or toiletries?

Thanks for any advice.

Janey

Hello, everyone!

I am currently on the point of concluding a degree in Translation Studies with Russian as my language of specialization. I would be interested to stay in Minsk for at least one whole month, from mid-June, most likely, with the purpose to further my language skills in Russian.

I’m a Spanish citizen, I'm 32 years-old, and I’m well-traveled, but I still feel that I need a piece of advice in regards to what the best options for housing are—that is, what do you reckon is more…
