New scheme to grant dual citizenship to Lankans

The government is to amend the Immigration and Emigration Act of Sri Lanka in order to offer dual citizenships, a minister said.

Minister Laxman Yapa Abeywardana told the media today that the Government is to establish a new scheme called ‘overseas Sri Lankans’ to formalize the grant of dual citizenship to Lankans who have terminated citizenship.

  1. this does not explain how to retain Sri Lankan citizenship when a sri lankan is eligible to apply for the citizenship of another country.
    Retension is far more different than resumpsion , so there must be clear criterias for these two situations. Retaining is applies by only sri lankan born sri lankan citizens, but resumpsioncould be applied by Ex sri Lankans or forigners.
