Australia-Belarus relations 

Australia established diplomatic relations with Belarus in January 1992, following its independence from the Soviet Union – the third country to do so.

The Australian Government has limited all bilateral cooperation with Belarus in response to its support for Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Australia only engages bilaterally with Belarus when it is critical to delivering on our national interests.

The Australian Government asked all state, territory and local governments and public universities to put on hold existing bilateral cooperation with the Belarusian government, including Belarusian subnational government entities, and to reconsider new engagement.

For more information see the Foreign Arrangements Scheme or contact the Foreign Arrangements Taskforce in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade at [email protected].

Economic and trade information is available in the Belarus Fact sheet.
