The Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau (SLFEB) has temporarily halted the registration of women who acquire private visas for untrained and domestic employment in Oman and the UAE.
A circular in this regard was issued by SLBFE Chairman Mahendra Kimarasinghe today.
Accordingly, the SLBFE has decided to discontinue the process of registering female domestic workers and low skilled female workers who are leaving for foreign employment on a self-employed basis to apply for a visit visa to the UAE and Oman with immediate effect.
SLBFE also requested to advise such female domestic assistants and other low-skilled workers to obtain their foreign employment through a license on a foreign employment basis.
It was also stated that the decision will not apply to re-entry workers.
Other rules and regulations speculated in the circular with regards to the SLBFE registration of migrant workers on a self-employed basis will remain unchanged, the chairman said. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
