Lukashenko: Visa-free stay in Belarus may be extended if necessary

LIDA, 24 March (BelTA) – The period of visa-free stay in Belarus may be extended if necessary, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with the employees of Arvibelagro on 24 March, BelTA has learned.

“If five days are not enough, we will extend this period. Why should we be afraid? Belarus is an open country with open economy, and people should come here in an open way. It does not do harm to anybody,” Alexander Lukashenko is convinced.

The head of state emphasized that the visa-free entry to Belarus was also meant to attract the representatives of business communities from other countries. “A businessman should come, and he will not stay for a long time here. Five days will be enough. He will come, solve all issues, and go home. Then another businessman will arrive,” the President said.

Alexander Lukashenko remarked that security issues remain under control. A special list of people who are not allowed to enter Belarus or Russia for certain reasons has been compiled in the country. Such people will not enter Belarus.

Speaking about the tourism appeal of Belarus, the head of state believes that Belarus’ nature and people are the main treasures of the country. Many people are seeking for peace and quietness in Belarus, they like our rural estates offering comfortable recreation conditions. “Preserve this purity and kindness of our Belarusian hearts,” the head of state added.
