Organized in a short period of time, the Embassy officials, the Consulate officials and the volunteers from the Nepalese community organizations did their utmost to ensure that it was a smooth process while dealing with an unprecedented number of applications.  The Hon. Consul General of Nepal to Victoria thanked the Nepal Embassy and Rajendra Pandey, the Deputy Chief of Mission, for offering their services in Melbourne which facilitated many Nepalese residing in Melbourne. He also thanked the Nepalese community organizations and their volunteers for their support during this programme. The Nepal Consulate offered gratis service of internet, photocopiers and other assistance to the applicants. With the phasing out of handwritten passports by November this year, the Nepal Government will now ensure that all Nepalese hold valid machine-readable passports (MRP).
