Entry to Belarus (in English)

19.01.2021

All foreigners and stateless persons who have reached the age of six (except those who have a temporary/permanent residence permit in Belarus) to enter Belarus are required to have a negative PCR test performed no later than 3 days before crossing the border. 10-day self-isolation is mandatory only for persons arriving from the countries included in the List of the Ministry of Health, where cases of COVID-19 infection are registered.

The validity period of the PCR document is calculated from the date of its execution, which is considered the first day of the PCR, until the expiration of the third day. (If the date of execution of the PCR is 01.12.2020, then from 00.00 04.12.2020 the PCR document is not valid for entry into the Republic of Belarus) .

Ten-days-stay of individuals in isolation is calculated from the date of arrival in the Republic of Belarus, which is considered the first day of stay in isolation until the expiry of the tenth-day-stay in isolation. (If the date of arrival in the Republic of Belarus is 01.12.2020, then departure from the Republic of Belarus is possible from 00.00 on 11.12.2020).

If a traveler has a document confirming 24-hour transit through the territory of Belarus a PCR test and self-isolation are not necessary (link to the «TRANSIT» block to click on the text: “details” in the section “Transit through the territory of the Republic of Belarus” and go)

In the absence of a document confirming 24-hour transit through the territory of Belarus, a foreigner needs a PCR test. In addition, he or she will be given a questionnaire of the newcomer, which must be handed over to an official of the border service authorities when leaving the country. At the same time, in the questionnaire as a place of residence (stay) in the Republic of Belarus, travelers must make an entry: “transit through the territory of the Republic of Belarus in no more than 24 hours”.

If the transit period exceeds 24 hours, it is possible for a traveler to cross the border only if he or she has a certificate with a negative result of a PCR test for COVID-19 infection.

The absence of a medical document is a ground to refuse foreigners entry to the Republic of Belarus
