      The tour of the consulate will take place on Friday, November 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be limited to the first 75 registrants. The tour requires a separate registration and is open only to those who are registered for the training. No one will be allowed on the tour who has not registered by the cut-off date. No substitutions will be allowed on the day of the tour.
