In view of the involvement of Belarus in Russia’s full-scale military action against Ukraine, an increased activity of Russian and Belarusian troops in the territory of Belarus, considerable security risks, and an unpredictable development of the security situation in the near future, we call on Latvian nationals currently present in Belarus to leave the country.
Our ability to provide consular assistance to Latvian nationals in Belarus is limited. Latvian nationals residing in Belarus are urged to bear in mind that departure from Belarus has been made difficult. We call for exercising precaution in public places with large numbers of people and for avoiding mass events.
Work of the Embassy of Latvia in Minsk has been suspended for an indefinite time. Consular assistance and consular services at the Embassy in Minsk are not being provided. If you are in an emergency situation, immediately contact the Consulate of Latvia in Vitsebsk (phone +375 212 614 482; e-mail: email@example.com), or the consular officer on-call around the clock at the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by phone: +371 26337711 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
