3 beautiful cities in Eastern Europe, independent tourists should not be ignored
Drowned in an unreadable Cyrillic copy and bombed with an incomprehensible “consulship” spread by my desktop, I almost gave up. But with a small goal to visit Belarus, one of the least visited countries in the world right now. Who knows, maybe this is not difficult …
After toughening out a Russian visa application, I refused to give a pint size problem, such as changing my Belarusian visa.
Are you confident that you will receive a successful Belarusian visa? Here are some lessons. (And a quick fix) from my own experience:
Getting a Belarus visa is easier than getting a Russian visa.
Compared to the panicked process of applying for a Russian visa, a visa for Belarus is a leisurely walk in the park. A simple Belarusian visa application avoids the complexity of Russia by trading the request. Not relevant as well. “Where did you go to high school?” Or “Show visits every time you visit in the past 10 years with exact dates.” “Have you ever been to Belarus?” In fact, almost nothing in the Belarusian application belongs to the ordinary.

However, citizens of Australia, New Zealand and Ireland, all of whom are not officially represented in Belarus, must apply in Belarus. Third-country embassy or visa upon arrival at Minsk airport.
Although Russia and Belarus have Customs Union It also requires separate travel visas for both countries. When traveling between two people, you will notice a lack of border ritual – does not mean you are free to roam! Verify that your host has registered a visa with officials in both Russia and Belarus to avoid unpleasant battles with politsiya.

Check your documents twice!
Bureaucracy may be angry But the worse fate is to delay your visa due to your own negligence.
Before you send everything out, check all your papers in sequence! For your Belarusian visa in the embassy, you need to have the following:
