Sir Derek Plumbly - British Ambassador

Luxor has always had the services of Mr Ehab Gaddis, the Honorary Consul but yesterday saw the first Consular Roadshow. This meant that many of the services only available in Cairo were here in Luxor for one day. One of my long term guests took the opportunity to get his passport renewed. You could submit many other consular and visa services.

It is hoped that this would be regular events in Luxor and I certainly support that. The Embassy certainly listened to my feelings, in fact the ambassador has asked me to become a Warden. I suspect many people are not aware there is an Honorary consul here and in fact many nationalities have them. I have seen the Italian one in the grounds of the Sheraton.
