Grodno, Brest, and beyond without visas for ten days

The hospitable country of Belarus has become even more hospitable. Citizens of dozens of countries are offered several ways of visiting the country without visas:

  • 5 days! You can visit any part of Belarus without visas, provided you enter and leave the country via the Minsk National Airport.
  • 10 days! Foreign tourists are invited to visit one of the two visa-free travel areas in Belarus. The visa-free stay period was extended and the visa-free territories were expanded on 1 January 2018.

Now foreign visitors have up to ten days to visit the most beautiful places in western parts of Belarus. The tourism and recreation area Brest is now a visa-free travel territory. It includes the city of Brest and the Brest Fortress Memorial, Brest District, Zhabinka District, Kamenets District, and Pruzhany District in Brest Oblast and Svisloch District in Grodno Oblast. The national park Belovezhskaya Pushcha, which has been inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List, is located in this area.

The other visa-free travel area includes the picturesque tourism and recreation park Augustow Canal, the "royal" city of Grodno and Grodno District.

In order to visit Brest or Grodno for ten days without visas you need:

  • buy a holiday package from a travel agency (as per rules, travel agencies are the ones to take care of routes and sightseeing in the visa-free travel areas);
  • fill in forms, send in your data (passport information, contact information) and sign a contract with the travel agency for a tour as an individual or as a group.

The travel agency will have to take care of the rest – registration, the necessary documents, other things – within 48 hours. You just have to come to Belarus and have a good time! By the way, you can cross the border via special checkpoints located next to the visa-free travel areas or via railway terminals and airports in Brest and Grodno.
