Macao is covered by the British Consulate-General in Hong Kong, supported by an Honorary Consul based in Macao. A number of British diplomats at the British Consulate-General Hong Kong are accredited specifically to Macao, but many of our staff are as heavily involved with Macao as they are with Hong Kong.
British Consulate General organise a community outreach event in Macau (12 August 2011)
On 11 August, the Consular Section at the British Consulate General in Hong Kong organised a ‘Consular Clinic’ for around 100 British Nationals resident in Macau. Consular Assistance staff were joined by colleagues from the Passport Section, who were on hand to explain to customers the new arrangements for passport issuing that come into effect towards the end of August and to answer any questions on the new arrangements, a colleague from UKBA who answered questions on Visa matters, and the British Honorary Consul Glenn McCartney.
Ian Hodges, H.M. Consul, said “as many of the British Nationals resident in Macau either work full-time or are quite elderly, it is difficult for them to travel across to Hong Kong during Consular opening hours. So if they cannot come to the Consulate General, we decided we would go to them. The event contributed towards achieving a number of our objectives within the 2010-13 Consular Strategy. The event was an opportunity to do outreach to British residents to give information on Consular work and to get feedback on our services. The event was also in response to a number of comments that we had received from Macau residents on our Customer Satisfaction survey that they found it difficult to travel to Hong Kong during opening hours”
