Colombo. Feb. 22 (Daily Mirror) - Efforts are being made to introduce the E-Passport service to eliminate the long queues at the Immigration and Emigration Department office in Battaramulla.

Addressing the media Minister, Tiran Alles said that long queues have been created to obtain passports for the Korean Language Proficiency Test. 

He mentioned ongoing discussions with the Korean government to implement a system where passports are issued only to those who pass the exam.

    This is all bullshit this is the same way they started on line passport applying scheme and I applied for the passport and waited for 4 months as it did not come I had go to Battaramulla to inquire why it is being delayed then after few days I received my passport. Big talks but when it comes to work it’s very poor.
