Two-passport system in Belarus from 2019?

Belarus is ready to switch to a 2-passport system. Belarusians will be able to have internal and foreign passports after the introduction of biometric documents in the country.

This option has already been discussed with international organizations and is now being proposed for consideration by state bodies.

It is expected that the new generation passports will be introduced as early as January 2019.

They will allow quickly establishing the identity of the owner and passing border control quicker. In addition, such documents are better protected from forgery and unauthorized reading of information.
