I would like to visit Belarus. To apply for a Belarussian visa, one needs an "invitation", which is usually provided by a hotel or travel agency. However, I would like to travel independently, staying with couchsurfing hosts. Is it possible to do this?
Here's the Belarussian visa application form: http://www.belarussianvisa.com/belarus-visa-forms/english.pdf Boxes 21 and 22 concern the invitation.
