will no longer be required for UK passport holders as long as you fly to Minsk and stay for a period of 5 days or less. Been to Belarus twice watching Scotland.the first time was an eye opener,Flew to vilnius as it was cheaper than a direct flight,visas were aquired from the embassy in london and were only valid for 8 hrs which we thought was more than enough time to get in watch the game and get back out again.How wrong we were ,the coach we hired was held up at the border crossing for 3 hrs then a fast drive to the teams hotel in minsk to pick the match tickets up and change money as it was a closed currency.we were told by the SFA official not to change more than $10 as we would not have time to spend it all,quite right they were ,bottles of vodka for the coach trip back were bought and we still had thousands of roubles left over.several years later i put the remaining notes on ebay and received 10 times more than what i paid for them.Second time we travelled to Warsaw and cought the overnight sleeper train across again a visa was required from the embassey but in warsaw the day before .
This starts from Feb 9 2017.
Info on the Belarus Embassy website
Should be good for a weekend or UEFA midweek games
Great news even better if train journeys from Poland were included
