NOTES VERBALES: The official written form of communication with the Protocol Directorate, is a Note Verbale in duplicate. These should not be sent direct from a Consulate-General/Consulate but via the Embassy/High Commission of the country concerned.

It is essential that separate topics be dealt with in separate Notes Verbales as different sections/desks deal with different subjects. The DIRCO List clearly indicates the desk division.
