Parliament gallery opens for visitors again | Sri Lanka News


The restrictions enforced on visitors to the Parliamentary Complex and to the Galleries have been relaxed from September 20, Communications Department of Parliament said.

The decision has been taken at the Committee on Parliamentary Business today following a proposal made by the Serjeant-at-Arms.

As a preliminary step, it was agreed to allow parties who request to visit the Parliament, including school children, on days when there are no parliamentary sittings.

Accordingly, with effect from 20th September, 2022 the School Children will be allowed to visit the Parliamentary Complex on Non-Sitting days from 9.30 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. (except holidays)

“Now the School Authorities are able to submit their applications to the Serjeant-at-Arms by sending a letter, a Fax (0112777473/ 0112777335) or by applying online through www.parliament.lk,” Communications Department said.

Student Groups of Universities, Higher Education Institutes registered under the Government and Foreign Tourists too could avail this facility, the Serjeant-at-Arms said.
