The Mission’s Mobile Consular Team lead by Mrs. Priscilla Ankomah, Minister Counsellor/ Consular commenced the first-ever Mobile Consular Services this year in Finland.

The exercise has been a huge benefit to Ghanaians and other nationals in Finland who wanted to process their Ghanaian passports or acquire visas to Ghana.

This maiden initiative attracted over 50 applicants, most of whom were members of the Ghanaian community, and were served with passports and visa processing as well as dual citizenship services. The service is expected to continue throughout the Nordic countries, having kick-started in Helsinki.

Most of the applicants later expressed their deep gratitude to the Ghana Embassy Copenhagen for bringing the much-needed and sought-after consular services to their doorstep in Helsinki.

The first applicant, Ms Miriam Adu-Bediako, who applied for visa for herself and her two children, conveyed her appreciation for the excellent service given by the staff, saying “this has saved me a lot of time and money, posting of documents, and all that.”

Several others also gave very positive and highly appreciative feedback to the Mobile Consular Team and the Embassy as a whole for this initiative. They express that it saved them money and time, as it would have been inconveniencing and difficult if they had had to travel or post their documents to Copenhagen.
