APPLY FOR A VISA TO BELARUS IN VILNIUS
Belarus is a lovely and very genuine country to ride in, and I don’t think you should miss out only because of visa reasons. If you fly into Belarus you’ll get a “visa on arrival” that’s valid for 5 days, but if you want to drive into the country you need to apply and get confirmed in advance. And it’s much easier than you might think! Here’s a small guide I’ve put together about how to apply from the embassy in Vilnius.
I was told that it’s only possible to get a visa for Belarus through a travel agency, but that’s just not true. At all. Do it yourself and save money for something more fun – like gas!
Please be aware that different nationalities might need different documents and that Belarus might have updated their rules after this was written. I have a Swedish passport.
NEW: It’s now possible to apply for a visa in Stockholm, Sweden. Belarus has opened a new embassy.
