Innovation for the International Festival of Arts “SLAVIANSKI BAZAAR IN VITEBSK” this year will become a visa-free procedure for entering and leaving the country from July 1 to July 20 at all checkpoints across the State Border of the Republic of Belarus. This will be possible for foreign citizens who have purchased tickets to the events of the Arts Forum from ticket operators kvitki.by, ticketpro.by, bilesuserviss.lv, zakazbiletov.kz, as well as foreign participants who have invitations from the Center of Culture “Vitebsk” or the Ministry of Culture.
According to the Border crossing rules for foreign citizens, foreign citizens crossing the state border of the Republic of Belarus must have the following documents:
1) a document for traveling abroad (passport) with a valid visa for citizens of countries with which Belarus has a visa regime (in this case, a ticket to a festival event is a substitute for a visa);
2) document for return to the state of nationality or residence (in case of loss of the passport in the territory of the Republic of Belarus).
When crossing the State Border of the Republic of Belarus, the foreigner is obliged to produce a document for traveling abroad with a valid visa of the Republic of Belarus ((in this case, a ticket to a festival event is a substitute for a visa).
