My Lawyer

With effect from 10th August 2015, applicants applying for passports are required to provide digital photograph and fingerprints to the Department. The digital photograph should be submitted through one of our authorized photo studio located island-wide or at the Department head office or at regional offices. Printed photographs will no longer be accepted. Fingerprints will be collected at the Department head office or regional offices and applicant should be present in person.

All passport applicants irrespective of age should use passport Application Form K 35A (Instructions)
All passport applicants including children should provide digital photograph through Authorized photo studio
Fingerprints will be collected from all applicants above 16 years at the head office and three regional offices in Sri Lanka
Applicants submitting passport applications through Sri Lanka Diplomatic Missions overseas could do so without providing fingerprints and digital photograph.
Inclusion of children in parents passport will NO longer be allowed and children will be issued separate passports
No Emergency Certificate (EC) shall be issued for applicants below 60 years
