Immigration to start work-to-rule campaign

17 May 2018 01:27 pm - 9     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A work-to-rule campaign is to be launched by the Sri Lanka Immigration & Emigration Officers from midnight today (17) over the failure by authorities to solve several pressing demands, the Sri Lanka Immigration & Emigration Officers' Association said.

The campaign would cover all airports and seaports in the country.

Meanwhile, SriLankan Airlines had informed all passengers, to arrive at the airport three hours prior to the departure time effective today, May 17, 2018, 12.00 p.m. onwards until further notice.

“This is to minimize delays that may arise due to the ‘work to rule’ trade union action carried out by the Sri Lanka Immigration and Emigration Officer’s Association,” the Airlines said. (T.K.G Kapila)

    Please tell them to declare their assets and to be subject to regular security checks at the airport.

    There are the slowest and laziest immigration officers in the world already so why they need a strike action further?

    Not true. I've travelled to Sri Lanka 32 times and - contrary to some other countries - haven't made any negative experience at BIA. The officers there have even been very supportive in 2 siutations and often offered a friendly wlecome to SL on arrival. As this is my personal experience I cannot speak for others.Just try out US immigration and you'll definitely change your mind!

    Why not have the system at the exit point only to swipe your boarding pass like in UK and get rid of these lazy owls

    What is the use of sending Immigration Officers to Sri Lanka Missions abroad. Useless appointments.
