MINSK, 4 April (BelTA) – 2,535 citizens of Ukraine entered Belarus in the past three days, including 592 people transiting through the EU states, BelTA learned from the State Border Committee.
“From 6.00 on 1 April to 6.00 on 4 April 1,943 citizens of Ukraine arrived in Belarus through the Belarusian-Ukrainian border. Another 549 people came to Belarus transiting through Poland. 42 Ukrainians passed in transit through Lithuania, and 1 through Latvia,” the State Border Committee said.
Belarus continues to provide necessary assistance to people arriving from the Ukrainian territory. Thus, since 3 April foreign nationals arriving in Belarus due to the social and political situation in Ukraine, including those transiting through other countries, do not need a PCR test (certificate) to enter the country. In addition, foreign nationals traveling from Ukraine to the place of permanent residence are allowed visa-free entry into Belarus until 15 April inclusively.
Belarusian checkpoints are operating in a routine mode.
