The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is not issuing a specific travel advisory for Belarus at this time.
There have been confirmed cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Belarus.
Local authorities in countries and territories with confirmed cases of COVID-19 may impose containment measures including travel restrictions and quarantine requirements to prevent the spread of the virus.
Such measures may be imposed at short notice and specific details may change rapidly, including where and to whom they apply to and for how long. All travellers should stay informed of measures being taken by authorities in the areas they are travelling to. We recommend that all travellers consult the official website or the nearest embassy or consulate of your country or territory of destination to find out about any border controls and other measures that may apply to you.
For information on countries and territories which have COVID-19 related border restrictions affecting foreign nationals, including travellers in transit, please check the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website before you travel. IATA provides a comprehensive list of all countries and territories that have imposed COVID-19 related border restrictions and is being continually updated.
As part of its response to managing the COVID-19 outbreak, the New Zealand Government has some temporary travel restrictions in place in New Zealand. Please refer to the New Zealand Ministry of Health website for up to date information.
New Zealanders travelling or living in Belarus should have comprehensive medical and travel insurance policies in place that include provision for medical evacuation by air.
New Zealanders travelling or living in Belarus are encouraged to register their details with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
There is a changing situation in regard to the rules and regulations when crossing the border between Belarus and Russia. If you intend to cross the Belarus/Russia border, we strongly recommend you contact the nearest Russian Embassy and nearest Belarusian Embassy for clear advice on current requirements for entry and exit.
