In consideration of the Belarus Council of Ministers’ decision to limit cultural, scientific, sports and other events to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the U.S. Embassy in Minsk will suspend non-immigrant visa services beginning March 17, 2020.  Services for U.S. citizens will continue to be available.

The U.S. Embassy in Minsk is committed to protecting the health and safety of U.S. citizens and Mission employees.  Once the threat of COVID-19 has subsided, the U.S. Embassy will resume full nonimmigrant visa operations.
