Andrius Pulokas, Director of the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, noted that opening of new visa centres in Belarus completes their expansion abroad, which began in Russia and Ukraine in 2013. Currently Lithuania has 40 visa centres in 9 countries.

Long working hours of visa centres and the possibility to receive all additional services in one place will create better conditions for Belarusians to apply for a Schengen visa.
