The term of visa-free stay of foreign nationals in Belarus has been increased to 30 days. The corresponding decree has been signed by the President. The central condition for such stay remained the same, which is to enter and leave Belarus through the National Airport Minsk. The new rules will not apply to those who arrive in Minsk from Russia, or flies from the Belarusian capital to Russian airports. It is expected that visa simplification will boost interest in our country from tourists, as well as improve the business climate. The visitors will also be able attend the Junior Eurovision Song Contest this year and the 2nd European Games the next.
