As Belarus is situated in the center of Europe (you may look at the |map| and explore some more about its geography), there are no problems getting here. Everything depends on from where you are starting, and by which means of travel you prefer. From across the ocean... Hi, across-oceaners! The only way for you is air travel. Several companies will offer you a flight to Belarus. They are: |Lufthansa| (German), |LOT| (Polish), BelAvia (Belarussian), |Aeroflot| (Russian), etc. You can find out scheduling information on their sites. Search for "Minsk". I would also recommend to check out the |following link|. This is the Lonely Planet site where you will find a lot of interesting things about Belarus, Minsk and other cities. You will never regret going there (I mean to this site). :)
So From Europe...
Absolute absence of problems getting here. Air travel, bus, train, taxi... Look at the airline links in the paragraphs above and explore those possibilities. The other convenient way, and the cheapest, is to get here by bus. Here is a list of companies which I know and which I would trust: Intercars Ligne Reguleures Internationale (Belarussian/French Co.), Sovpolda (Polish), Raihert GmBH(Germany). You may also explore the possibilities of getting here which are available from your own country. I doubt that you'll meet with problems.
From Middle East.
Don't even know what to say. Most probably by air. ElAl Airlines fly here, and you know it better. I mean, bus is quite a rare way of travel between our countries, so air is probably the only way out for you, guys. And it's quick...
From China and neighborhoods...
Only air. You know it. You may, of course try railroads, but I think on arrival here you won't feel very well. More than a week in a wagon - that's a challenge. What airlines? No idea. Never heard. But people somehow get to and from your countries. Ask for "Minsk" at an airline company - they should know.
Also, I would like to warn you. The worst idea which may come into your mind is the idea to bring your car with you. Never, ever try to bring a car here! First reason - a student going to his or her university by car is a rare sight in our country (makes you a target). Second - you will swear at all and everything on the Earth when the time comes to fuel your car. Though the fuel is cheap, it's quite a problem to get... So, beware.
