"The NCCSL is negotiating with the immigration department to get them to issue a different type of passport to business travellers," de Silva, head of the NCCSL's agriculture and food processors section, told a forum organised by the chamber.
"It will be of a different colour, with more pages. Very soon, we businessmen who are certified by the chambers and the EDB will have a different passport. It will allow more travel."
He said the chamber was trying to ensure easier overseas travel for the island's business people who are required to make frequent trips abroad.The move followed complaints by company executives of difficulties in getting approvals like visas for overseas travel.
