COVID 19 Update for studying in Belarus
For you to understand how the Belarus Higher Education System reacted to the spread of the virus, there are some organizational things you should informed about. After being declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020, Corona Virus hit the universities hard all around the world and Belarus is with no exception.
Every country has had its own border protection measures for COVID-19. It is recommended you to thoroughly research on travel restrictions before you plan your study abroad. For a while Belarus like all other states had shut down international travel but this has resolved lately. Now students from abroad can apply to Belarus universities within stipulated guidelines.
Authorities here continue to maintain numerous measures imposed to stem the spread of coronavirus disease, as of Jan. 15-21. Most nonresident foreign nationals are indefinitely barred from entering the nation via land borders; exceptions include freight transporters, international public transportation workers, diplomats, persons seeking urgent medical attention, and healthcare workers.
It is important to note that these restrictions differ for nonresident foreigners. Nonresident foreigners however, may enter the country by air; travelers over six years of age must produce a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test taken no more than 72 hours prior to arrival.
Follow all official instructions here. Abide by national health and safety measures once you land in Belarus. Reconfirm all travel arrangements. Consider delaying traveling if experiencing symptoms associated with the pandemic, as they may prompt increased scrutiny and delays on your itinerary. Liaise with trusted contacts for further updates and guidance or simply send us an email we have a team waiting to assist.
