At a meeting of the permanent commission of the parliament on international affairs Deputy Chief of the Main Consular Department said that in 2018, plans to increase visa-free entry to Belarus for 10 days for travelers arriving via the National airport “Minsk”.
For the period of the II European Games the term of visa-free entry through the National airport “Minsk” will be increased to 30 days. Then it is planned to extend its effect to all checkpoints, not only airport.
This year it is expected about 80 000 visa-free entries to Belarus. This negatively affects on the income from the sale of visas. However, this will not affect financial losses for the Belarus, as there is an increase in the export of tourist services. For January-August, tourist services were provided for about $ 90 millions, while losses from non-issued visas amounted to about $ 12 millions. This is a positive experience, and it needs to be developed, said Alexander Ganevich.
