Due to the mobile consular outreach activity initiated by the embassy, many of the Sri Lankans employed in the production lines at the Classic Fashion Factory were able to avail of consular services without having to forego a day travelling 180 km to Amman.

The consular team was directed by Ambassador designate Shanika Dissanayake and included Attache Ganga Mahadewa, assisted by Consular Officer Muditha Abhayarathna and Labour officer Chandima Jayaweera.
