U.S. Citizen Services
Welcome to American Citizen Services
Several hundred 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 request of the Belarusian Government in 2008 to reduce our American personnel from 35 to 6 diplomats, we offer our services on Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment only. The Embassy also assists in emergencies, including deaths, arrests and crisis situations.
All of our American citizen services require your presence at the Embassy. Please Click here to make or cancel appointment for passport-related applications, Reports of Birth Abroad for children, extra passport pages or notary services.
