The ban on entry to the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation

Advocates of our Law Office have a wide experience of work and solving problems in the field of the migration law of the Republic of Belarus. One of the issues on which our advocates specialize on migration legislation is the lifting of the ban on entry to the Republic of Belarus (Russian Federation). The ban on entry to the Republic of Belarus is a temporary measure that can be appealed and, with a professional approach, to get its cancellation.

The last 2 (two) years, our advocates and lawyers receive a large number of complaints about the ban on entry to the territory of the Republic of Belarus to foreign citizens. Often our foreign Clients simply can not understand what was the reason for the ban on entry, because according to the conviction of my clients, they did not violate the legislation of the Republic of Belarus, moreover, they stayed on the territory of the Republic of Belarus for 1-2 days.

As a rule, in practice, the term of the ban on entry, which is received by an individual, is from 3 to 5 years. The client, in practice, usually finds out about the entry ban against him already at the airport itself (both on the territory of the Republic of Belarus and on the territory of the Russian Federation).

It should be noted that an agreement is in force between the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation on mutual recognition and enforcement of decisions to refuse entry to the territory of the member states of the agreement of 03.03.2015. Thus, as a rule, when a person is banned from entering the Republic of Belarus, an individual receives a ban on entry to the Russian Federation.

What can serve as the basis for prohibiting the entry of a foreign citizen into the territory of the Republic of Belarus?

As a rule, the basis for prohibiting a foreign citizen from entering the territory of the Republic of Belarus is the violation by a foreign citizen of the legislation of the Republic of Belarus. The most frequent case in practice is a violation of the legislation of the Republic of Belarus on visa-free entry. Thus, a foreign citizen who uses visa-free entry to Belarus leaves the territory of the Republic of Belarus through the territory of the Russian Federation, which is contrary to migration legislation. Such a situation may lead to a ban on entry into the Republic of Belarus for a period of more than 3 years.
