Consular Corps of Washington DC Features in Washington Diplomat Article

On the 16th December 2020 the Washington Diplomat published an article on their website. The article was titled ‘DC-based consular officials shine during global COVID-19 emergency‘.

Current Consular Corps President, New Zealand Consul-General Anna Law, and former Consular Corps President, Luxembourg Consul-General Stan Myck, were interviewed for the article.

The article highlights the importance of consular work as part of the critical operation that goes on in countries’ embassies and consulates and how often the consular staff at posts are the unsung heroes of foreign ministries’ work.

Consular work involves assisting nationals of their countries who find themselves in various undesirable and adverse situations whilst abroad. Consular work involves assisting with many complex issues ranging from replacing a lost or stolen passport to shipping the body of a deceased loved one back home for burial.

Consular work became even more complex this year with the outbreak of COVID-19 around the world with foreign nationals all over the globe finding themselves locked down in hotels, stuck on cruise ships, or unable to return to their home country due to travel restrictions and flight cancellations.
