In Belarus, the Ukrainians will be able to enter only the passport

From Belarus you can still return home with the usual passport, but to go there, right agrandisement

The Cabinet of Ministers at its meeting partially stopped the Agreement between Ukraine and Belarus on visa-free trips of citizens. Now from September 1, Ukrainians will be able to travel to this country only for a visit.

According to the Agreement of 2009, Ukrainians had the right to travel to Belarus, internal passports of the citizen of Ukraine. Now, a new government decree canceled the departure to Belarus with an ordinary passport on 1 September, and there will be more to go on foreign or diplomatic passport.

Changes to the Agreement between the parliaments of the two countries relate only to the departure of Ukrainians in Belarus. For citizens of Ukraine from the territory of Belarus will pass in the internal Ukrainian passport.

The government believes that a normal passport low level of protection and increased the number of forgeries of the document. A fake passport can use for traveling to Belarus to commit criminal acts (or the offender). Also the absence in the passport of Ukrainians of information on the English language makes it impossible to read the data to check against databases of Interpol. The passport will speed up the pass at the border.

Recall that, in 2016, the Ukrainians had problems with the Belarusian border – Belarus refused to let the Ukrainians for new passports. There was mentioned that ID cards are not provided as a document for crossing the Belarusian state border.

The website “Today” I understood why Belarus didn’t let the Ukrainians with biometric passports. It is worth noting that in contrast to the “old books”, ID-a passport with both sides protected by a triple level of protection.
