New online appointment system for consular services

The Consular Affairs Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is preparing to launch an electronic appointment system for authentication services starting September 29, 2022.

The new system was created by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with SLT Mobitel.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it would make it easier for the public to receive efficient services in the authentication section of the consular affairs division.

The online appointment system will allow the public to obtain online appointments for document authentication at the Consular Affairs Division and its regional consular offices in Jaffna, Trincomalee, Kandy, Kurunegala and Matara.

People looking for authentication services can dial 225 (mobile subscribers) or 1225 (landline subscribers) and via Mobitel e-channeling (www.echannelling.com) to get an appointment.

Appointments can also be obtained by accessing the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at www.mfa.gov.lk.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that from September 29, 2022, the Authentication Section of the Consular Affairs Division and its regional consular offices will accept service requests only through the online appointment system. (NewsWire)
