Visiting Malaysia for Jobs : Message from SL Defence Ministry

Visiting Malaysia for Jobs : Message from SL Defence Ministry

 

Several Sri Lankans have been reported to have flown to Malaysia on visit visas after being deceived about job opportunities in the country, the Ministry of Defence said. 


The Ministry highlighted that an increasing number of Sri Lankans are arriving in Malaysia under visit visas with the belief that these visas could be converted to working visas. 


The observation was made during the special press briefing from the National Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force (NAHTTF) of Sri Lanka, which was chaired by the Ministry of Defence. 


The Ministry said it has been brought to the notice of the National Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force that an increasing number of Sri Lankans are arriving in Malaysia under visit visas with the belief that these visas could be converted to working visas. 


Therefore, the National Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force of Sri Lanka advises the citizens of Sri Lanka that visit visas to Malaysia cannot be converted into work visas upon arrival and urges Sri Lankans who are seeking employment abroad to do so via legitimate and authentic avenues.
