CONSULAR MISSION TO CAIRNS. OVER 100 PEOPLE ASSISTED

From 6 to 8 May the Consulate of Italy in Brisbane organised a consular mission to Cairns, Northern Queensland, carried out in accordance with COVID-19 restrictions and regulations. Over 100 users received consular assistance, in particular through the collection of biometric data for the subsequent issuance of Italian passports.

At the end of the visit, the Consul of Italy in Brisbane Mr. Salvatore Napolitano declared: "We travelled to express our support to the Italian Community in Northern Queensland, and in particular in Cairns, who was very happy about the mission which was scheduled already for 2020 and that we had to postpone due to the pandemic outbreak. I also renewed the commitment of the Consulate, under the coordination of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Embassy of Italy to Australia, ​​to work for the reactivation of the Honorary Vice Consulate in Cairns, a position which is vacant since 2012".

During the visit, the Consul also visited Cairns State High School, where he met with the teachers and students of the very successful Italian immersion program. The Consulate expressed sincere thanks to the Mayor of Cairns Bob Manning who made the Cairns City Library available for the mission as well as to the City Council executives who showed great interest in strengthening institutional, commercial and cultural collaboration with Italy.
