COVID vaccine portal for those leaving for jobs abroad

Daily News, Sri Lanka, 30 August 2021 - A new online portal “Covid-19 Vaccine for Migrant Workers” has been set up under the Government’s programme to vaccinate those leaving for foreign employment, Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE) said.

“This COVID-19 vaccination programme is facilitated in coordination with the SLBFE for Sri Lankans leaving for contractual employment. All such Sri Lankans must register with the SLBFE prior to their departure for foreign employment in terms of the provisions of the SLBFE Act No. 21 of 1985. Accordingly, in order to obtain COVID-19 vaccines under this programme one is required to confirm leaving for contractual employment and obtain registration with the SLBFE by paying the prescribed fees under the said Act. The SLBFE does not charge any fee for vaccination,” the Bureau stated.
