Hi,

Applying for a Belarus Transit Visa in the UK.

The embassy website is a bit confusing, I wondered if anyone has experience with this process.
I have train tickets booked, (from vilnius to minsk and minsk to kiev) all within 48 hours.

I have medical insurance but it doesn't specifically say Belarus, is "worldwide" sufficient? I've called my insurance provider but they're inflexible about doing anything about it for me.

Does anyone know if I can apply on behalf of other people at the…

Hi, I would like to take advantage of the visa free entry to Belarus when visiting Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park. Various websites say that I need to register to do this and will receive an e-mail document. I have not been able to find a working link to do this. Can anyone help?

Hi,

I will be in Belarus for 9 days, I know that you have to register within 5 days if you actually stay in Belarus for more than 5 days. Would that be enough If i register just once on 1st, 2nd or even 5th day and then do not register anymore? I would like to moe around fast, spend 2-3 days in Minsk and visit other places before going to Latvia. What do you think? Do hostels register you as well?

After all my troubles with VISA application I contacted the Embassy in London (last week) they asked for my surname and they said that my visa will be ready on the 27 th of June.

I provided them with my surname and after short conversation with his co-worker the guy asked me when did I send my documents. Then my phone....got dead. Battery. I could not contact them again as they work till 4 pm only. I…

Hi all,

My friend and I are trying to plan for a week in Belarus in October during a five week Eastern Europe trip, but I'm worried about the logistics of getting about. We will be flying in from Moscow, initially my idea was to fly to Minsk and somehow get from Minsk to Vitebsk and spend the night there but it seems that the trains don't go very frequently. Does anyone know how frequently marshrutkas run between the two cities? Or is it just too much to try to go to Vitebsk for one night only?

First off, sorry to be hogging up the forum here...my plans for Belarus keep getting complicated!

I have an American passport. For my first destination of my trip, I will arrive in Moscow where I'll stay less than a week. I then fly from Moscow to Minsk, where I'll be for four days. Then, I take the train to Lithuania. After a week and a half in the Baltic states, I'll be taking a bus from Tallinn, Estonia, back to St. Petersburg, Russia.

I knew that the train between Russia and Belarus…

Looking forward to my trip to Belarus! Got a few question, though:

  1. How safe is Belarus and Minsk in particular? I'm planning to take some train journeys that leave Minsk early in the morning (and arrive back in Minsk late at night) and I would prefer to walk to the train station (I'll be staying in the center, so it wouldn't be far), but if it's dicey around there, or anywhere in the city center, especially around "off hours," I'd take a taxi.

  2. How are taxi drivers in Belarus…

Hi Belarus experts,
Planning a trip to Minsk, Braslav Lakes Region, Narochanskii and Viciebsk in august. Do you think it will be possible to find a place to stay (hotel, guest house) without any pre booking? Minsk would have many options but most accommodations in Braslav Lakes area seems fully booked for august. I hope there are some guest house/ dacha owners who don't list their properties on web and can be reached by asking around.
I speak some Russian to get by, what if I hop off the bus in…
