About 60,000 tourists have arrived in Belarus via Minsk National Airport since the 30-day visa-free travel program was launched. Most of the guests came from Germany, the USA, and Italy. Although the extension of the "visa-free" period was primarily aimed at the promoting of the tourism industry, those are not just tourists who take advantage of the travel opportunity. The simplified regime has strengthened the position of our country as a convenient platform for organizing international forums, conferences and sports competitions.
