10 days without registration in Belarus
Alexander Lukashenko has signed the Law amending the Law “On the Legal Status of Foreign Citizens and Stateless Persons in the Republic of Belarus,” the President’s press service reports. Previously, the corresponding document was adopted by the House of Representatives and approved by the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly.
The law also provides for an increase from 5 to 10 days of the period during which foreigners arriving in Belarus are required to register at the place of actual temporary stay. This decision was made to develop tourism and investment attractiveness of the country, simplify business and private contacts.
In order to ensure maximum protection of the interests of society and the state against threats of various nature, the grounds for refusing to issue a visa to enter Belarus or to enter the country are adjusted. At the same time, a mechanism is determined for foreigners and their representatives to receive information on the inclusion in the list of persons whose entry into Belarus is prohibited or undesirable, the press service said.
