EASTERN EUROPEAN DISPUTE RESOLUTION FORUM

MINSK, 17-18 SEPTEMBER, 2020

About the Forum

This autumn Minsk will host the annual Eastern European Dispute Resolution Forum (EEDRF) for the 4th time. Lawyers from all over the world will unite for a few days in order to discuss key topics related to dispute resolution in international commercial arbitration and state courts.

This year the main topic of discussion will be «Procedural issues in International Arbitration and State Courts» and we are going to discuss:

  • the role of arbitrators and parties in the conduct of an efficient dispute resolution process
  • what can happen in the early stages of arbitration
  • what is going on behind the scenes of the proceedings
  • selected issues of post-award life

Participants of EEDRF from 80 countries don’t need a visa if they arrive at the national airport Minsk and stay in the country for no more than 30 days (the day of arrival and departure included). This includes all the counties of the European Union, USA, Brazil, Japan, Indonesia and some others.

    You only need:
  • passport;
  • money (about € 22 per day);
  • medical insurance valid in Belarus (for at least € 10000)

List of the countries that can come to Belarus visa-free: Check it here

Visa-free travel does not apply to persons coming to Belarus with flights from Russia and intending to fly to Russia.

Despite the fact that Belarus and Russia are a Union State, visa-free initiative applies to the territory of Belarus alone. And because flights from Minsk to Russia are considered internal ones, flying there without a visa will be considered a violation.

Also, even if you have a valid Russian visa, you can not fly from Minsk to Moscow (or vice versa) directly.

Solution? If you are going to EEDRF, you will have to take an international flight out of Russia (to Poland or Lithuania, for example) and then fly to Belarus from there.
