We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Belarus. The British Embassy in Minsk provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Belarus.

Our work covers a range of issues including human rights and trade.

We work 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.

You can access UK government services while in Belarus.
