Five-day stays for citizens of 80 countries
Belarus will soon allow the citizens of 80 countries to stay in the country without a visa for up to five days. President Alyaksandr Lukashenka signed a decree on Monday allowing the move.
Citizens of European Union member states and countries such as the United States, Japan, Brazil and Indonesia are eligible. The decree should come into force a month after it is published in official state-run media.
However, citizens of countries such as China and India must have valid visas from other countries in Europe to be eligible.
The visa-free stays are also not valid for anyone arriving in Belarus from Russia, as there are no passport control points on that border.
Minsk, the Belarusian capital, retains the atmosphere of the Soviet Union and is characterised by large, Soviet buildings, a monument of Lenin, an opera and ballet theatre and countless hammer-and-sickle emblems. A number of internally branded upscale hotels opened there recently.
