It is still uncertain whether my credit card insurance works as a medical insurance for visa-free travel to Belarus, so I'm going to prepare for signing in the insurance at the Minsk airport.
However, I guess that the medical insurance must be done before you pass through the immigration; otherwise no one would check your insurance. But I also feel that there is no ATM until you get through the immigration.
So it is unlikely that I could not have Belarusian currency, unless I obtain it in my destination airport in advance. But the rate must be pretty bad so I would rather avoid it.
So, my questions are:
- How much does the insurance cost? I travel for 5 days (4 nights).
- Can I use my credit card (either Amex or Visa)?
- If it is only in cash, are other currencies acceptable, including Euro?
