The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Montevento (Italian: Ministero degli Affari Esteri di Montevento), also referred to as the Chancellery of the Republic (Italian: Cancelleria della Repubblica) is the administrative institution of the State responsible for planning, directing, developing and executing the foreign policies and international relations of the Republic. It promotes the cultural exchange and international dissemination of Monteventani culture; making known the characteristics of the legal, political, economic and social regime of the Republic to foreign governments and provides the information that is required for that purpose. Since its creation in 1846, it has pledged to fulfil the following tasks:

Represent the country and its views towards other states and international organizations;
Protect the interests of the nation, as well as its citizens living or travelling abroad;
Assist the Monteventani industries in the international marketplace, by striking trade deals with other states;
Supervise the immigration process of foreign people to Montevento, providing aid and support.

It is directed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, who is selected by the Doge of the Republic. Since December 7, 2019, according to the indications of Doge Christian Saavedra, Mr. Fabiano Grado occupies this position, maintaining a highly globalist position, seeking the incorporation of Montevento in the international diplomatic scene by opening multiple embassies, participating in bilateral negotiations between several countries and deepening the participation of the Republic in international organizations of various kinds, but always defending and maintaining the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic intact.

Due to the relatively small population of the country and the extremely pacifist position of the citizens of the Republic (which resulted in practically the total disarmament of the nation), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has played an extremely important role, due to the need to formalise international alliances and defense pacts to ensure the territorial integrity and defense of the Republic against foreign forces. Such is the importance of the Ministry that the Minister of Foreign Affairs is considered the third in the line of succession to the Dogeship of the Republic in case of death, resignation or disappearance of the Doge, only after the First Councillor (leader of the National Council), making him/her the third most important member of the Government.

The Ministry has its headquarters at the Palazzo Bertolotti in the capital city of San Giovanni. It was built in 1833 on the orders of Aronne Bertolotti, the first Doge of Montevento, and was designed by one of the best architects of the country at that time. It used to be the seat of the National Council, but in 1927 it was decided to move the Council to a new and larger establishment (the Palazzo Legislativo), making the Palazzo Bertolotti the seat of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the place where most diplomatic meetings are organized by the state.

The Ministry is also one of the only Ministries of Montevento that offers the totality of its services via web at www.gov.mv/foreignaffairs.com, providing some degree of support even for those living in territories where Montevento does not have embassies, consulates or any other form of diplomatic relation.

As of 2020, the Ministry also oversees the permanent mission to the United Forum of Nations and plays an important role at organizing the elections to define the 23 UFN parliament members that correspond to Montevento.
