The Immigration and Emigration Department said today that dual citizenship certificates will be issued to 2,500 Sri Lankans living abroad by Internal Affairs Minister S.B. Navinne at a ceremony at the BMICH on March 15.

Immigration and Emigration Controller M. N. Ranasinghe said they had received more than 20,000 dual citizenship applications so far and they had already issued certificates to 4,200 of them.

The fee to be paid by the primary applicant requesting for dual citizenship was increased to Rs.300,000 in the 2016 budget. However, the amount paid by the applicant’s spouse remains unchanged at Rs. 50,000. (Sanath Desmond)
