From now on they will have new tools to communicate with English speakers at points of entry.
Immigration Officers that work in different parts of the country, including Montevideo’s Port and Airport, Colonia, Salto, Paysandú, Maldonado and Fray Bentos, attended an English course and received a manual and a practical handbook with useful phrases.
The project was carried out with the support of the British Embassy in Montevideo and the Uruguayan National Office for Migrations. This builds on the success of a previous joint project: in 2012 the British Embassy supported the creation of a bilingual manual with useful phrases in English and Spanish for police officers and offered English courses for those working in Montevideo and Colonia.
Both courses were delivered by The Anglo Institute.
