Belarus has extended visa-free entry for citizens of Latvia and Lithuania until the end of this year, said the Belarusian Foreign Ministry on May 15.
“It has been decided to extend the visa-free entry, exit and stay in the Republic of Belarus for citizens of Lithuania and Latvia until the end of 2022,” reads the statement of the ministry.
The decision was made taking into account the positive feedback and numerous requests by foreign nationals. Officials believe that this step will allow citizens of neighbouring countries to form their own unbiased opinion about modern Belarus, its politics and economy, to learn more about the culture of the Belarusian people.
Earlier, visa-free entry to Belarus was allowed for citizens of Lithuania and Latvia from 15 April to 15 May.
On Tuesday, 3 May, Belarus celebrates Radunitsa (Radonitsa), or Commemoration Day of the Departed. It is one of the ancient Slavonic holidays.
On the eve, everyone visits cemeteries, puts their ancestors’ graves in order and decorates them with flowers.
Every year on this holiday more than a million Belarusians go to the cemeteries. Christians also pray in churches for the salvation of souls of deceased relatives.
In Belarus, in contrast to many countries, this holiday is traditionally an official non-working day.
On 24 April, Orthodox Belarusians celebrate the holy holiday of Easter.
As usual, on the eve, believers bake Easter cakes (kulich), paint eggs and take them to church to consecrate them.
Easter is always a joyful, exciting and long-awaited religious holiday in Belarus. On Easter morning the whole family gathers for Easter breakfast and lights a candle brought from church. Everyone congratulates each other with the words “Christ is risen”. The answer is: “He is risen indeed.”
The g4 tours team would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter!
As of April 3, there are no restrictions for foreign citizens and stateless persons to enter and leave Belarus. However, foreigners need a PCR-test or a vaccination certificate to enter Belarus.
