The embassy and consulate general of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Australia kindly ask your attention for an update about our social media platforms:
From 1 September 2020 the Dutch diplomatic missions in Australia will share one joint Facebook page, called “Netherlands Embassy and Consulate General in Australia”.
The URL will remain www.facebook.com/NLinAustralia the same as the former “Embassy of the Netherlands in Australia” page.
The Facebook page of the Consulate General in Sydney will be deactivated.
Consul General Frank van Beuningen explains why the Embassy and Consulate General have decided to use only one Facebook page: “We are one team, with one mission: to represent the interests of the Netherlands in Australia. It makes perfect sense to have one go-to Facebook page for Dutch nationals who want to visit, live, work, study or do business in Australia, as well as Australian nationals who want to do the same in the Netherlands.”
Mr Van Beuningen urges all followers, in particular consular customers, to follow the Netherlands Embassy and Consulate General in Australia Facebook page.
“On this Facebook page we will, besides other regular topics, publish all relevant updates about the services of our consular section in Sydney”, the Consul General said, “as well as consular updates about Dutch passport and visa applications, nationality matters and other consular affairs.“
