Welcome to OOSLA

The Office for Overseas Sri Lankan Affairs is a dedicated new entity established in January 2023 under the Office of the President, as per his vision to intensify the engagement with all Overseas Sri Lankans. An estimated total of 3 million people of Sri Lankan origin are now living and working in host countries around the world. While making immense contribution towards the socio-economic progress of their countries of domicile, these OSLs also look for opportunities to support their communities back in Sri Lanka.

Driven by a service oriented mindset, OOSLA welcomes all those OSLs with warmth, friendship and a deep collaborative spirit. We invite you to connect with the motherland for a renewed path of change that we all aspire Sri Lanka to traverse.
