I would like to welcome everyone visiting our new website. I truly hope this online portal becomes a simple and effective public service tool that facilitates access to all of the information you need regarding our services.
Since August 2016, I have been in an honorable mission to support our community and represent Portugal in Australia, a great and very dear country to us. Time has flown by and there have been many memorable moments, from the Secretary of State’s visit to the various cultural events, such as the celebration of Fado as Cultural Heritage and the launch of the 6 Continents Festival.
Combining efforts with the Camões Institute for Cooperation and Language, and with the Coordination for the Teaching of the Portuguese Language, the promotion of cultural events and of the Portuguese language has propagated and prospered across Australia. Moreover, for the first time in 10 years, a new AICEP representative has been appointed and is based in Sydney.
Together with the Embassy in Canberra and with the Honorary Consulates in Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne, Perth, Auckland and Wellington, the Consulate General of Portugal in Sydney works to benefit our community and to grants consular protection to over 60.000 Portuguese people who live in Oceania.
You can always count on my support and assistance, as well as that of our small but incredibly dedicated team. I also hope to be able to rely on you and will always welcome any questions, suggestions and ideas that you may want to bring to us.
The Consul General of Portugal in Sydney,
