Permission stamps[edit]

Until January 1, 2008, Belarusian citizens had to apply for permission stamps in their passports in order to cross Belarusian borders. Permission stamps were given if there were no specific legal restrictions for their moving abroad.

In 2002, Constitutional Court of Belarus stated in his decision that permission stamps were not constitutional. Council of Ministers was ordered to propose a different kind of a citizen border control until December 31, 2005.

With the Decree of the President of Republic of Belarus of December 17, 2007, permission stamps were finally abolished.
