Belarus Transit VisaHi everyone,
I am very sorry if this has been answered recently, but I cannot find any recent information regarding getting a transit visa for Belarus in Moscow.
I have a UK passport and need to get a transit visa for Belarus in Moscow.
Is this possible?
How long does the process take?
How much does it cost?
What documents will I need?
Thanks so much!!

1I have not done it in Moscow, and I have not done it for a few years.
But just in case nobody else answers, here's my memories of a Belarus Trasit visa.
Remarkably simple if you have tickets in and out of the country and visas for the countries you will en in before and after Belarus (or a passport that does not need visas for those countries).
It took three days. Needed photos.
Probably helped that I had no 'nights' in Belarus.

2Yes, it is possible. You need to complete the application, photos, tickets for travel.
Process takes 5 business days according to the website of the Belarus consulate. You can get rushed service which is 2 working days. Cost depends upon your passport so check the website of the Belarus embassy in the UK. Cost should be able the same.
To get a transit visa you must show train or plane tickets for travel into and out of Belarus. You are allowed two days and theoretically you can't stay in a hotel overnight but people do it.

I have found your information very helpful in relation to transit visa for Belarus. I was wondering if you are able to assist us with some extra queries for us.
My partner and I are Australians so we will have to apply for transit visa either in St Petersburg or Moscow. We will be arriving in St Petersburg on 26 Dec to 31 Dec and Moscow from 31 Dec to 4 Jan. We will then leave Russia via train from Moscow to Warsaw.
Will language and time be a significant barrier for us if we apply for an urgent visa possessing in St Petersburg? We note there is public holidays in the new year from 1 to 5 January so realistically we would have to apply in St Petersburg. We understand we can apply for 2 day turnover but what concern us is the language as we speak very basic Russian.
We would appreciate any feedback in regards to the Belarus consulate in St Petersburg. If anyone can assist us, please do jump in.

5I have emailed them (with English and Russian) instead as we are not competent in Russian to be able to talk to them via phone from Australia. I can't find out anything on internet to suggest the opening hours between 26 December to 31 December. Will see how it goes with the email.
