The international fair of tourism services Leisure 2018 opens in Minsk today. The forum has drawn together companies from 16 states, including Bulgaria, Hungary, Georgia, Egypt, and China. Last year, the tourist flow to Belarus increased by 30%. This was largely facilitated by the introduction of a visa-free regime. The ten-day visa-free travel option is already available for two tourist destinations. Work is in progress to expand the visa-free travel period for the Minsk National Airport by the end of the year. In the Year of Native Land, Belarus pays special attention to promoting farm tourism as well.
