Hi, Has anyone taken the train to Vilnius from Moscow? I heard for Americans that you need a visa to go through Belarus on the way. Anyway to buy that on the border, or get around it?

Absolutely you do need a transit visa for Belarus! I've seen the authorities force someone off the train. Have also seen them take someone off and put them back on after the girl paid $100 "fine". You can get easily get a transit visa at the Embassy here in Moscow & they'll do "srochno" if you need it fast.

BTW, are you going to Vilnius for a new visa? If yes, when? Most likely I'm going on the 21st.
