The Consular Affairs Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, presently at the BOI building, 3rd Floor at No.14, Sir Baron Jayathilake Mawatha in Fort, has been relocated to the Ceylinco Building, 2nd Floor, No. 69 Janadhipathi Mawatha, Colombo 01 with effect from today.

The new premise ceremonially opened by Minister of Foreign Affairs Mangala Samaraweera today. The Foreign Minister will also launch a state of the art electronic Document Attestation System (e-DAS) that will reduce processing time for document attestation, with a quick verification process linked in real-time with Sri Lanka Missions and Consulates abroad, as well as other government institutions. An online system for appointments and payments will also be in place at the new premise.

The new premise will be open to the public with effect from Tuesday, 7th February 2017. However, to ensure uninterrupted service to the public, consular services will continue to be made available at the BOI building, as well, until further notice.
