Arriving people:

  • could be subject to self-isolation for 7 days. This doesn’t apply to holders of a COVID-19 vaccination certificate in Belarusian, English or Russian showing that they were fully vaccinated at least 1 month and at most 12 months before arrival.

Transit for foreigners is possible only if they arrive in Belarus via air checkpoints. 

If the transit is documented within a 24-hour period, a PCR test and self-isolation are not required. In the absence of a document confirming 24-hour transit through the territory of Belarus, a foreigner needs a PCR test. In addition, they will be given a questionnaire of the newcomer, which must be handed over to an official of the border service authorities when leaving the country. At the same time, in the questionnaire as a place of residence (stay) in the Republic of Belarus, travelers must make an entry: «transit through the territory of the Republic of Belarus in no more than 24 hours». 

 

If the transit period exceeds 24 hours, it is possible for a traveler to cross the border only if they have a certificate with a negative result of a PCR test for COVID-19 infection (to get a certificate, travelers must contact a medical institution of Belarus).
