Suspension of All Consular Services

Effective February 28, 2022, U.S. Embassy Minsk suspended operations due to security and safety issues stemming from the unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces on Ukraine from Belarus. All consular services, routine and emergency, are suspended until further notice. U.S. citizens in Belarus who require consular services should try to leave the country as soon and as safely as possible and contact a U.S. embassy or consulate in another country for necessary assistance.

U.S. citizens in Belarus who need assistance can also call the Department of State at 1-606-260-4379 (from outside the United States) or email consularminsk@state.gov. For inquiries from within the United States, please call 1-833-741-2777.

Due to Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified attack on Ukraine from Belarus, U.S. citizens located in or considering travel to Belarus should be aware that the situation is unpredictable and that there is heightened tension in the region.   Potential harassment targeted specifically at foreigners is also possible.  Given the heightened volatility of the situation, U.S. citizens are strongly advised against traveling to Belarus.
