To whom it may concern


I have known Andrei Burdenkov in a professional capacity for over 2 years since 2009 when he held a position
of a Tourism Specialist in SMOK TRAVEL ltd and would confirm that he is an excellent English-speaker and tour organizer (Minsk and Minsk Region).

Moreover, he has a profound knowledge of Belarus immigration procedures (tourist visa, local registration and MSQ Airport arrival procedures) and will be able to efficiently consult a traveler on the mentioned issues. I trust that the information provided will be of help and assistance. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Yours sincerely,
Andrei Shkarubsky
