U.S. Citizen Services

Welcome to American Citizen Services

Several hundreds American citizens live and work in Belarus.  Many more visit every year.  The Department of State, through its Embassy in Minsk, provides a range of routine and emergency services for Americans who live in Belarus or who are just visiting.

This assistance includes but is not limited to, Passport services, Notary services, and Consular Reports of Births Abroad.  Due to the limited staffing caused by the staff draw down in April-May 2008 caused by the request of the Belarusian Government to reduce our American personnel from 35 to 5 diplomats, we offer our services on Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment only. This way time will be reserved for you and our staff can help you more efficiently. The Embassy also assists in emergencies, including deaths, arrests and crisis situations.

All of our American citizen services require your presence at the Embassy. Appointments will be scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM. You can schedule an appointment by sending us an e-mail to or by calling us on any working day from 4.00 PM to 5.00 PM at +375 17 2101283.

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Minsk is located at 46 Starovilenskaya, Minsk, 220002 Belarus.  We can be reached by:
• telephone, +375-17-210-1283;
• fax +375-17-217-7160;

In the case of an emergency involving an American citizen, call +375-17-210-1283 or +375-29-676-0134 (after hours).  American citizens visiting or residing in Belarus should note that the emergency number for the Belarusian police is – 102, ambulance – 103, rescue and fire department – 101.
