If you are staying in Belarus for more than five working days then yes, you will need to register your migration card (which you will be given when you enter Belarus) and passport, just as you would if you were travelling to Belarus for more than five working days using a visa.
The process of registration of your migration card and passport is the same as for registering a visa in Belarus; your place of accommodation will register you when you check in. They should put a registration stamp onto section “B” of your migration card.
Alternatively, if you are staying at a private apartment, you must go with the landlord of the apartment to register at the Passport and Visa Department in the town or city where you are staying.
