For a Private/Homestay/Visitor’s Visa, the applicant is required to provide an original invitation. The applicant’s relatives or friends should obtain invitation (“zaprashenne”) at the local passport and visa office of the Ministry of Interior Affairs. In case of emergency (unexpected illness, death of a relative, etc.) visas can be issued upon submitting a certified cable from a doctor or a clinic in Belarus.
Citizens of the US, Canada, members of EU and select other countries who intend to stay in the Republic of Belarus for no longer than 30 days when visiting a private person do not need to provide letters of invitation. Still, the inviting person and their address must be indicated in the visa application form.
For a Tourist Visa, the applicant must provide an original invitation issued by an authorized Belarus travel agency. If you would like for Go To Russia Travel to obtain such invitation for you, please contact us for details. In most cases, a reservation at a hotel and booking of travel services is required in order to obtain a tourist invitation. Additional fees (cost of invitation, international shipping), besides cost of travel arrangements, will apply.
For a Business Visa, the applicant must provide an original letter of invitation from a company or an organization in the Republic of Belarus, which is registered as a legal entity by the Belarus authorities. The letter of invitation should be printed on the official letterhead with a registration number, date of issue, and should bear the signature of an official and a corporate seal. It should also indicate the expected duration of the applicant's stay in Belarus. The inviting party must provide written guarantees that the invitee will abide by the rules and regulations applied to foreign citizens in the Republic of Belarus.

Multiple-entry long-term business visa requires confirmation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus.
For a Transit Visa, the applicant is required to have (in their passport) a visa for the country they will enter after transiting through Belarus. In case of traveling to a country that requires no visa for the applicant, it is required to provide a copy of the ticket, itinerary from travel agent or any other credible document confirming the trip to the appropriate country.
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT VISA REGISTRATION IN BELARUS
Your visa must be registered within 3 business days upon your arrival to Belarus. When you arrive at the border, you are required to fill out a Migration Card, part of which will be retained by the passport control. The other part will be returned to you with an entry stamp. It is used for visa registration and must be presented to passport control upon departure from Belarus, so please keep it on you with your documents at all times!
If you are staying at a hotel, the hotel staff will register your visa for the duration of your stay at the hotel. If you are staying at a private residence, your visa must be registered at the Passport and Visa Department (formerly OVIR) in the city/district where you reside. You will need to be accompanied by your host or landlord and present your passport, Migration Card and proof of insurance and pay the fee of $7.50 (in local currency). The mandatory insurance is sold at the international airport upon your arrival. If you arrive to Belarus by train or car, it is your responsibility to obtain such insurance in the city where you are staying prior to your visa registration. The two Belarus agencies that insure foreign travelers are Belgosstrah and Beleximgarant.
Please keep in mind the importance of visa registration, as you may encounter problems with Passport Control upon your departure from Belarus and have to pay a fine of up to $150 in the event your visa is not registered.
