How to Apply/Not to Apply for a Visa to Belarus

Jump to last reply

Before you begin the process, ask me. I just made every mistake in the book.

Unlike what you would think, you have to present evidence of hotel bookings BEFORE they will give you the visa. Of course, if they don't give you the visa, then you have to cancel everything.

The entire process is, from an American perspective, silly, but you have to remember Belarus makes the rules and the US does not exactly give Belarus nationals an easy time if they want to visit the US.

The Embassy has been very helpful once I explained to them in detail my travel plans for Belarus and why I was going (principally to visit the ancestral villages where my maternal great grandparents and grandmother were born.

Belarus does lack a lot of tourist infrastructure and not many go there. I will be home exchanging in Warsaw, so, if I was going to see those villages ever, that was my shot.

Hopefully I'll get the visa, but it has been a lot of back and forth.
