The British Embassy Minsk is the official representation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Belarus.

We work on a wide range of issues with the Belarusian government and non-governmental organisations to support political, social and economic reforms, improve the situation in the areas of human rights and the rule of law, and encourage Belarus’ full participation as a member of Eastern Partnership. We work with businesses in Belarus and the UK to build trade links for mutual growth.

If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, you should contact us as soon as possible. For all other applications, please check what you must bring with you and then make an appointment at the Embassy using the link below.

Please call for advice before making an appointment if:

  • you have never applied for a British passport before

An emergency travel document does not guarantee entry to every country. Read what an emergency travel document does.
