US film star and Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina Jolie has accepted an offer to visit Nauru, according to reports.

The invitation followed Jolie’s meeting with Nauru’s President Baron Waqa at a global summit on sexual violence against women in conflict last month.

Nauru is a destination for Australian asylum-seekers including Sri Lankans under the federal government’s policy of not accepting asylum-seekers on the Australian mainland.

Nauru’s government confirmed the actress had accepted the invitation, and said it believed the visit would be an opportunity to showcase the facilities for refugees on Nauru, the ABC reported.

No date has been set for Jolie’s visit to Nauru.

Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison said on Monday any visit by the Hollywood star to Nauru was not a matter for Australia.

However, Some Australian medias have reported that Angelina Jolie will not be visiting the island of Nauru.

Medias report that  the actress has no plans to visit Nauru, and her diary is full for the next 12 months.
