Tourists with Fan IDs who travel to Russia through Belarus will have to get a transit visa.

"The agreement which was signed at the end of May, is still valid until 12 o'clock in the morning, and then it will resume its action only during the European games, there are no other legal grounds for the passage of former fans," said the head of the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus Igor Fisenko at a press conference in Minsk.

At the same time, he noted that Russia and Belarus had not discussed this issue yet. "There have been no consultations so far, ten days have not passed and the law has not been adopted yet," Fisenko added.
