MINSK, 18 July (BelTA) – Belarus plans to waive visas for fans ten days before the launch of the 2nd European Games MINSK 2019, the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said during the Consular Day on its Facebook page, BelTA has learned.
According to the ministry, the visa-free regime to be applied during the 2nd European Games will be similar to the one used in Belarus during the 2014 IIHF World Championship. To enter Belarus without a visa fans will need to have a valid competition ticket, a valid document for entry and insurance.
“It is expected that such fans will be able to enter and remain in the country during the period that starts ten days before the games and ends ten days after the last competition. If they plan to come to Belarus via the Russian Federation, they will not need the Russian visa,” the ministry noted.
