Legal provisions concerning exit from and entry into Belarus changed

The Law of the Republic of Belarus of 25 November 2011 No 322-Z has amended some laws of the Republic of Belarus on issues concerning the exit from and entry into the Republic of Belarus. Amendments made establish, in particular, that the right to exit from the Republic of Belarus may be restricted temporarily for persons (both citizens of the Republic of Belarus and foreign nationals permanently residing in Belarus) being suspected or accused of committing crimes, under the procedure established for investigation of crimes. The law also changed the procedure for the exit from Belarus of organized groups of children going for medical treatment or rehabilitation abroad. The Law enters into force in six months from the day of its official publication.
