Tourists can now visit Belarus' part of Augustow Canal without visas

From 26 October, foreign tourists will be able to come to the Augustow Canal without visas. To visit the tourist-recreational park foreign guests must have only a passport and a document confirming the right to visit this recreational area.

Visitors crossing the border from Poland can enter Belarus without a visa through the checkpoints Lesnoi and Bruzgi. If you travel from Lithuania through both checkpoints Privalka.

The innovation should contribute to an increase in tourist flows to the park, attract investment in infrastructure development and create conditions for holding major international sports events.

Tatiana Lidyaeva, Deputy Head of Sports and Tourism of the Grodno Oblast Executive Committee:
We are launching an information portal in three languages ​​in which we publish a map of the visa-free zone, all available information on tourist routes, farmsteads, hotels in the city of Grodno and the Grodno district. All available services.
