Foreign travelers now have an opportunity to register with the police online. Starting fr om 2 January 2019, foreign nationals who are temporarily staying in Belarus are able to get registered without having to visit a local police office. Registration can be done through a PC, a mobile phone or any other device having access to the Internet. However, to extend the registration, foreign nationals and stateless persons should visit a local office of the Citizenship and Migration Department. Foreigners who arrived in Belarus by crossing the Belarus-Russia border should also get registered at the local office at the district wh ere they are staying in Belarus.
