Visa free travel to Belarus starting in February
While some presidents are signing decrees prohibiting people from traveling even with valid visas, other presidents are doing the opposite. Belarus’ Alexander Lukashenko, who isn’t exactly known as Europe’s most freely elected president, signed a decree earlier this month to start allowing five-day visa free travel to the country for 80 nationalities.
Previously, Belarus was cumbersome to get a visa, similar to Russia. Now a visit should be much easier and straight forward. The country has long been on my list of places to visit and who knows, maybe I’ll be able to squeeze in a trip sometime soon.
