What is the fastest way to get my Belarus visa?

updated on 13/02/2017

You can apply for an express Belarus visa in any Belarusian consulate that grants such visas and obtain it within 48 hours. For this you will normally need the same papers as for a normal visa (granted within 5 business days), the only difference here being a double consular fee. My experience as a travel agent shows that applicants were able to get a visa even within a couple of minutes from presenting all the required papers.

Another way for those who are pressed for time is application at the Consulate of Belarus in MSQ Minsk Airport. Click here to learn more about this procedure from Foreign Affairs Ministry official website or here explained by me.

Contact me for Belarus visa support (invitation can be issued within 24 hours)!


Questions are welcome!
