Hi.....does anyone know what the situation is with transit visas for Belarus at the moment? I need to get to Warsaw by train (from Moscow) sometime in the next week or so and don't know if I'll need a visa for crossing Belarus. Any info would be very much appreciated! thanks....

You`d better get one. You don`t need a visa to go to Belarus by train, but you`ll be risking your money if you`re going to cross the Polish-Byelorussian border without this visa.

As far as I know you absolutely need a transit visa or risk being removed from the train. I was just at the Belorussian embassy the other day for a transit visa. Not a big deal. They accept applications between 10AM-12PM. You need 1 passport size photo. I paid $36 for two time transit. Will pick up passport with visa next week. You can pay extra for same day.

Good luck.

Maroseika street. Just walk up the street from Kitai-gorod metro station, it`s only a few blocks away.
