The Border Committee of Belarus recently reported that citizens of the neighboring countries (Poland, Lithuania, Latvia) might be subject to a visa-free regime.
Journalists of the TV channel, declared extremist in Belarus, learned in the State Border Committee that "visa-free travel" will be introduced only for a month - from April 16 to May 15.
To cross the border, citizens of Latvia and Lithuania will only need a passport, insurance, a PCR test or a certificate of vaccination and money (two basic units per day of stay) or a bank account statement.
