The processing time is calculated in business days, excludes weekends and the day of order. It refers to how long it will take us to obtain your visa once we have received your documents and lodged your application with the Belarus Consulate. We will lodge your application the next consular working day after we have received all the application paperwork provided that all documents are in order. The due dates indicated on the order form account for UK and Belarus public holidays. However please note that the Belarus consulate may experience delays when issuing the visas usually shortly after their holiday period is over. The delays may occur due to other reasons as well, such as high volumes or technical issues. For that matter, the visa due dates are only provisional and by no means definitive. In any event, we do not recommend booking your flight or make other travel arrangements until you have got your passport and visa with you.
The Belarus consulate is closed on Wednesdays and does not accept lodgements or collections, so if we receive your application on a Tuesday it will be lodged on Thursday.
The day we receive your visa from the Consulate we will send it to you by Royal Mail Special Delivery, so you will have it the next business day before 1pm, or optionally hold it at our office for your collection.
