Entry and stay in the Belarusian border zone are free of charge
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has signed the decree № 351 “On stay in border zones”.
According to the decree, foreigners no longer have to pay for entry and temporary stay in Belarusian border zones. Until then, many border regions in Belarus had limited access with special passes (e.g. in the border region of Grodno or the Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park near Brest).
The free special identity cards are issued by the territorial border police authorities. They can also be issued electronically.
This innovation will make it easier for foreigners to stay in the border zone and increase the attractiveness of the area for tourists.
We will be happy to help you with your application or with any questions you may have about your stay in the border regions.
