Regional Consular Office – Jaffna

The Regional Consular Office in Jaffna, opened on 26 January 2017 provides the public with a range of consular services including; attestation of birth, marriage, death, educational, legal and other official documents; assistance to families of expatriates, so that stranded Sri Lankan nationals abroad are repatriated; seeking redress and facilitation of compensation, and repatriation of human remains to Sri Lanka.

The Regional Consular Office has provided the opportunity to people in the Northern Province and other areas, to obtain consular services in Jaffna without having to only travel to Colombo, for consular service.

Plans are underway to open another Regional Consular Office in Matara, in the Southern Province, in order to provide opportunities for people in the South and other areas to obtain consular services without having to travel to Colombo. These measures are part of the efforts of the Foreign Ministry to improve consular services to the public residing all over Sri Lanka, and not only confine services in Colombo.
