Overview.

Passports are issued by the Controller of Immigration and Emigration in Colombo and not by the Sri Lanka High Commission in Kuala Lumpur. Citizens of Sri Lanka with residence in Malaysia can apply for a passport at the High Commission. The application will be forwarded to the Immigration Department in Colombo where a machine-readable passport is issued. After receiving the passport from Colombo, the High Commission will inform the applicant to call over at the High Commission and collect the passport.

A Sri Lankan passport is now issued for a period of ten years. After 10 years Sri Lankans are expected to apply for new passports. New passports can also be obtained when there are no more pages for visa endorsements.

In the case of "L" and "M" series passports, names of children under 16 years of age will be endorsed in either of the parent's passports. Since the inclusion of children's photographs in "N" series passports has now been automated, the High Commission is unable to entertain requests for inclusion of child/children's details into the parent's passports.

However, the High Commission could issue a Non-Machine Readable Passport or an Emergency Certificate as a separate travel document until such time the Department of Immigration and Emigration in Colombo processes the application for a new "N" series passport.
