    • Invitation letter 30 days or less, answer from ambassy

      Belarus Aug 1, 2016 at 7:41 AM

      Ok i have read a lot of different thing on this.

      When i mailed the Belarus embassy in Latvia and Finland i got the same answer. "There is no need for invitation letter". and both linked to a document.

      But then i asked a followup question, something like this: "Will it be easier to get the VISA accepted if i have an invitation letter, even tho i don't need one?"

      And the answer was then: "Yes in some cases"

       

      So conclution: You don't need an invitation letter if your stay for less then 30 days, but having one can make a lot of difference. So with other words: Have one regardless if you need one or not!
       

      (This post is only made for info to other visa applicants, so no question asked by me here)

    • What currency should i bring? USD or EUR?

      Belarus Jul 31, 2016 at 2:28 PM

      Since Forex and all other exchange companies don't sell this Belarusian ruble BYN (Old was BYR) i need to have something else (In case of an emergency mostly and stores that don't take Visa card)

      But what currency will i be able to use the most in stores etc? USD or EUR?

      And i think that something around 500USD or 450EUR will be a good emergency amount for my 9 days visit.

    • possibly visiting Belarus next month

      Brest Jul 28, 2016 at 8:06 AM

      Anyone know what is the real cost of traveling from Warsaw, Poland to Brest, Belarus please ? (ie., flying into Warsaw as a cheaper option than flying in Minsk.) And/or perhaps it is convenient to hire a car (with insurance) in Warsaw to visit Belarus ? Thank you. Pete

      TAXI FROM GRODNO TO PINSK

      by tiagc Online Now Feb 24, 2014 at 10:06 PM

      Hi and Greetings from near Sydney Australia!
      We will be in Poland in a few months and staying with family. We would like to visit my mother's ancestoral home in Pinsk (which was in Poland before WW2). The train from Bialystok to Pinsk apparantly takes 12 - 14 hours! It's only 272kms by road but I was advised that this is not safe and tourists can be held up at the border for hours.
      I was thinking of taking the train from Bialystok to Grodno which is about 3hrs and then a taxi for 3 adults to Pinsk which would be about 3 - 4 hrs by road thus cutting down our travel time by nearly half! Any advice on this and a contact for a taxi firm etc. We would do the reverse after a feww days in Pinsk. ( My Polish and Russian went by the wayside many many years ago) regards Ingrid

      Is there anyway for a budget traveller to stay in Hrodna!?!

      by Drugness Online Now Mar 30, 2013 at 5:23 PM

      Hello all
      I've been hearing a lot about the quality of a few of these expensive hostels in Hrodna. As things stand, I don't think i'll be visiting if these are the only accomodation options :-/
      Are there any guesthouses or panzions in Hrodna? Maybe there are people waiting in the bus/train stations offering accomodation?
      I really don't want to be forking out anything more than €40 a night but I don't know really. I haven't been to Belarus before and at the moment it looks far from cheap accomodation-wise
      Thanks everyone
      DG

    • To Grodno, Belarus from Minsk or Warsaw?

      by Lydia14 Online Now Mar 28, 2013 at 9:31 AM

      I will be going to Grodno, Belarus in early July 2013 for a week (from Washington DC area)

      I understand to get to Grodno, it will be best to take ground transportation (train or bus). Trying to decide if I should travel to Minsk, Belarus or travel to Warsaw, Poland. I know both buses and trains are available but would like to know which route is more convenient and easier – thanks

    • Travel to Hrodna

      by mmr621 Online Now Feb 18, 2008 at 2:44 PM

      Thanks for the tip about not driving. I will be coming from Warsaw in the fall for a day. Am I better off to take the train and deal with the gauge change at the border, or take a bus? Also, my great-grandfather emigrated to the United States from Hrodna in the late 19th century. Family legend has it that he worked on a czarist estate. Is there an old palace/castle in the area? Thank you so much.

      Bus/Train from Grodno to Vilnius

      by Carletto76 Online Now Jul 19, 2006 at 1:28 PM

      I'm thinking about a trip across Belarus in october. I found train connections with Minsk and from there to Grodno, but I was looking for some way of transportation from there to Lithuania, Vilnius or Kaunas (better the first).
      From what I found online it seems there's no train connection, so I suppose there are some buses, but since I don't understand Russian nor Lithuanian, it's a bit complicated to find info on the net.
      If someone can help me with some links and/or timetables (and prices maybe) I'd be very grateful! :)
      Thanks in advance.

      Transit Visas

      by clmetal Online Now Feb 21, 2004 at 6:26 AM

      We are trying to go from Vilnius to Gdansk and we are trying not to do the overnight buses. I have read that you can get a transit visa through Belarus on that train for only like30, but when I called the embassy in the US they said the books were wrong and that we had to go through the full blown visa process from the United States (which is both difficult and costly). Can ayone help me? thanks
