Foreign nationals staying in Belarus for more than 5 days will soon be able to register online instead of at local police offices. This will be done through a dedicated electronic services portal. The system will be launched early next year. At the same time, one will still be able to apply in person. Starting with 2018 a number of other administrative procedures will be carried out electronically. These include issuing invitations for a foreign citizen to Belarus, as well as issuing special working permits for foreigners nationals.
