Hugh Todd

Seeking to alleviate the inconvenience of Guyanese having to travel to either Suriname or Trinidad and Tobago to interview for a visa to Europe, government is continuing discussions with the European Community on establishing visa services here.

“There is no commitment but it is something they recognise as important,” Foreign Affairs Minister Hugh Todd told Stabroek News.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs had reported that Todd met with European Union Ambassador to Guyana Fernando Ponz Canto and that the issue of visas for travel to Europe was discussed.
