Belarus introduces electronic registration of foreigners
The Ministry of Interior Affairs of Belarus in cooperation with the National Centre for Electronic Services will convert administrative procedures on citizens’ applications in electronic form within the period of 2017-2018. The procedure for registration of a foreign citizen or stateless person temporarily staying in Belarus as well as the procedure for issuance of a document on invitation of a foreign citizen of a stateless person to Belarus will be transformed into electronic form.
Also, conditions are created for filing in electronic form applications for the issuance of a special permit to a foreigner or stateless person for the right work in Belarus.
Representatives of legal entities and individual entrepreneurs will be able to submit such applications through the Single Electronic Services Portal from January 2018. In 2019, the procedure for reconciling of invitations of foreign citizens and stateless persons for educational purposes in electronic form will be implemented.
The lists of administrative procedures to be conducted in electronic form through the Single Electronic Services Portal have been established by the Council of Ministers. The corresponding decision was fixed by the decree of the Council of Ministers No. 529. dated 14 July 2017.
