  • Belarus The government of Belarus has changed the conditions of entry and transit through the country from October 22, 2020. The new rules are stipulated by Resolution No. 591 of October 13, 2020.

    The document says that all citizens of Belarus entering from the countries of the red zone, foreigners and stateless persons must go through 10 days of self-isolation. During this period, they will not be able to leave the country until the end of the quarantine period. However, a coronavirus test is not required.

    Also, persons who were in transit through the states of the red zone are subject to self-isolation, if they cannot document that the transit time did not exceed 24 hours.

    Foreigners and stateless persons arriving in Belarus from countries of the green zone must present a certificate of passing a PCR test for coronavirus in Russian, Belarusian or English, which was carried out no more than 72 hours before crossing the Belarusian border. In the absence of this certificate, border guards may refuse to enter the country.

    This rule does not apply to citizens of Belarus, foreigners and stateless persons arriving from the green zone countries who have a residence permit in Belarus.

    The government of the country also allowed transit through Belarus to foreigners and stateless persons who arrived from the red zone for one day. If this condition is met, such passengers are not subject to the requirement of self-isolation.

    The state airline “Belavia” additionally clarified that passengers in transit through Belarus from the green zone countries can cross the border without a medical certificate and additional control.

    The list of countries included in the red zone is published by the Ministry of Health of Belarus. Now it includes 131 states, including Ukraine.
