Tourists entering Belarus soon will not have to fill in migration cards. According to the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, following the meeting of the interdepartmental working group of the Union State in Grodno, a protocol on the 2004 migration card agreement was signed. According to it, there is no need to fill in the cards for those who enter Russia if they have a permit for temporary and permanent residence in Russia. The same concerns people who enter Belarus only, without transit to the neighboring country. Also, foreign citizens can obtain a visa for up to 10 days right at the airport. All a person needs for this is to have a room booked at a Belarusian hotel.
