Belarus to sign visa recognition agreement with Russia after finishing intrastate procedure

Belarus to sign visa recognition agreement with Russia after finishing intrastate procedure

BREST, 13 December (BelTA) – The Belarusian-Russian mutual visa recognition agreement will be signed after intrastate procedures in Belarus are completed, BelTA learned from Prime Minister of Belarus Sergei Rumas after a session of the Council of Ministers of the Union State of Belarus and Russia in Brest on 13 December.

Sergei Rumas said: “We didn’t sign the visa agreement today. The Belarusian side had not completed the intrastate procedures in time for the Council of Ministers session. I think we will finish them soon and the agreement will be ready for signing.”

BelTA reported earlier that the intergovernmental agreement on mutual visa recognition will enable legal conditions to allow third-country citizens to travel in the Union State of Belarus and Russia using a visa obtained from either country. Once the agreement comes into force, foreigners will not need two visas in order to stay in Belarus and Russia. People, who have the visa of one country, will be able to enter, leave, and stay in the other country as long as the visa is valid.
