England fans have been warned to get their visa applications for Belarus as soon as possible as the Football Supporters’ Federation has learned that prices are to rise by £50. Consular processing changes are to blame for the rise although fans may still be able to secure visas and vouchers at the old rate if they act quickly.
Fans travelling to Belarus for England’s World Cup Qualifier on 15th October are required to hold a valid visa. In order to qualify for one a voucher is required from a registered Belarusian travel agency with whom you have booked your accommodation.
Supporters wishing to travel to these games can contact RuVisa Ltd, one of a number of companies, who may be able to assist you with booking accommodation and securing the necessary paperwork. At present for the standard tourist visa service the cost is £89 but this is set to jump to £139 and for the express tourist visa service the cost is £119 but is set to jump to £199 after the Belarussian authorities announced their changes.
