Due to a technical fault in the computer system of the Consular Affairs Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the authentication of documents by the Consular Affairs Division of the Foreign Ministry in Colombo and the Regional Offices in Jaffna, Trincomalee, Matara, Kandy, and Kurunegala will be limited until further notice.

The Foreign Ministry accords the utmost importance to a smooth document verification process, and remedial action is being taken. At present, the Consular Division is processing only the most urgent documents, and other documents will be processed once the system is repaired.

Other consular services continue without interruption.

The public will be notified once the verification process is in full operation.

Any inconvenience caused to the public due to the technical glitch is deeply regretted.
