Latest News from Belarus
Most travellers to Belarus require a visa - and to obtain visa it is necessary to obtain a "Visa Support Letter" issued by an authorised agency in Belarus. We have worked in Belarus for many years and our local partner is able to issue visa support letters for most - but not all nationalities - for you to obtain a tourist visa for Belarus. We therefore recommend that you book your hotel online - we have a wide range of discounted hotels - and then add a "Visa Support Letter" to your booking online. We will forward the visa support letter within 24 hours from our local office in Minsk and you may then apply for your visa.
If you are located in the UK< we do offer a full visa service and can obtain a visa on your behalf. This is a cost-effective and easy way to get your visa to Balarus. Our visa team can advise on all aspects of visas for travel to Belarus - group visas, transit visas and tourist visas to name but three. If you wish to obtain a business visas, you will need to provide us with a Business Innvitation Letter from your sponsor organisation. Contact our visa team on +44 1480 433800 - or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org for full details of our Belarus visa service.
