Commissioner of the Department, R. M. S. Sarath Kumara told the Colombo Gazette that since the National ID card is in Sinhalese and Tamil it will not serve any purposes overseas.
He said that strict regulations will be introduced on where an ID can be kept if an individual is travelling overseas either on a long holiday or for employment.
R. M. S. Sarath Kumara said that further discussions in this regard are to take place with the External Affairs Ministry so that the Sri Lankans Missions overseas are also kept informed of the regulations. (Colombo Gazette)
