USA reduces costs of visas for Belarusians on parity terms
The USA has reduced the cost of visas for Belarusians on parity terms, Dzmitry Mironchyk, Press Secretary of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, said on July, 24.
After consultations between the Belarusian Foreign Ministry and the American side as of 1 June 2014 the universal consular fee for reviewing applications for issuing Belarusian visas of all kinds to USA citizens was set at $160 in line with article 243 of the Special Part of the Tax Code of Belarus.
“The American side has informed the Belarusian Foreign Ministry that the United States had reduced the cost of visas for Belarusians on parity terms and will now levy a similar consular fee of $160 for issuing a number of kinds of multiple-entry visas with the validity period of 12 months,” news agency quotes Mr Mironchyk as saying.
In his words, the legislation of the United States of America disallows reducing the cost of American visas further.
