"Lisbon will be the pioneer, starting next April, followed by Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), South Africa and Namibia", stressed the minister.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of training for 50 consular agents, who will work on issuing BI abroad, including in Portugal, Francisco Queiroz underlined that it is only after the four African countries that the process will extend to other countries in Europe.
