It’s common requirement of the law that foreigners must receive visa before arrive in Belarus. There are several kinds of visas: business visa, work visa, private visa etc. Your employee must receive work visa if he wants to work in Belarus, but if there will be any negotiations a business visa is appropriate too.


A foreign citizen must get a Special Work Permit to be able to work in Belarus legally. There are several consistent steps of getting a Special Work Permit:

1) filing of information about vacancy in your Company;

2) filing of documents to obtain a Special Work Permit.

These two steps usually take about a month. So you have to take this term into consideration.

Your employee is allowed to receive a work visa only after obtaining a Special Work Permit.

Registration and getting Temporary Residence Permit

Your employee must register himself in Belarus in five days after arrival. This procedure won’t take a lot of his time.

Temporary Residence Permit allows a foreigner to stay in Belarus during the term of Special Work Permit, but not longer than 1 year.

Compliance with these simple recommendations is the basis of your employees’ successful work in Belarus.
