Minister of Labour, Nimal Siripala de Silva said measures were taken to inoculate close to 8,000 Sri Lankan overseas job seekers with various COVID-19 vaccines as they had fulfilled the requisite criteria to go for employment in 15 countries. He stated that to all these Sri Lankan prospective job seekers their passports and visas had been approved and hence the Government had taken the necessary measures to provide jabs that are accepted by these countries.
Among the countries for which these job seekers are set to head are Dubai, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Singapore, South Korea and the Maldives.
