The Belarusian Government has issued a Regulation dated of 15 June 2021 No. 335 which shall regulate certain aspects of launching an experiment on mandatory disinfection of vehicles when crossing the state border.
Buses and coaches, cars and trucks with Belarusian or foreign registration will be subject to disinfection. The OOO BelGlobalGarant company will provide services in exchange for control marks, which can be purchased in BelGlobalGarant’s retail points and at the border crossing point “Novaya Guta” from representatives of the Belgosstrakh state insurance company and Belarusbank.
The driver or the owner of the vehicle will have to present a control mark to the border service officer, whom checks documents for entry to Belarus. The border service officer will break a control mark and return it to the driver or the owner of the vehicle.
Vehicles, whose driver or owner refuses to purchase a control mark will not be allowed to enter Belarus. Once the vehicle has completed all cross-border formalities, it moves to the disinfection site located outside the border crossing point to go through the disinfection gate.
The fee for disinfection is set as follows:
- Freight vehicle (truck + trailer/semitrailer) – BYN 25 (or ~ EUR 8,3)
- Bus or coach – BYN 12 (or ~ EUR 4)
- Car – BYN 2 (or ~ EUR 0,7)
As a reminder, the experiment will take place from 1 July 2021 until 1 October 2021 and so far at border crossing point “Novaya Guta” only.
