Embassy of Sri Lanka in the Sultanate of Oman has introduced a new procedure in coordination with the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE) and the Omani authorities concerned to curb irregular migration of Sri Lankan female domestic workers into the Sultanate of Oman.

According to the new procedure, the Directorate General of Passports & Residence of Royal Oman Police will be issuing employment visa to the Sri Lankan female domestic workers only if the Recruitment Agencies or Individual Sponsors submit the “No Objection Certificate” (NOC) issued by the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Muscat together with the employment contract of each Sri Lankan female domestic worker.

Therefore, the Recruitment Agencies and Individual Sponsors are now mandated to obtain a “No Objection Certificate” (NOC) from the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Muscat to recruit Sri Lankan female domestic workers into the Sultanate of Oman.

Accordingly, the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Muscat advises all the Recruitment Agencies and Individual Sponsors who wish to recruit Sri Lanka female domestic workers for employment in the Sultanate of Oman, to abide by the new procedure.

It noted that the “No Objection Certificate” (NOC) would be issued free of charge for this purpose.  The new procedure of the issuance of “No Objection Certificate” by the Embassy of Sri Lanka came into effect from 01st October this year.
