Sri Lanka to Establish National Passport Database to Increase Border Security

Along with plans to establish a Migration Intelligence Unit, the Sri Lankan Government expressed plans to also establish a “National Stolen and Lost Travel Document Passport Database” with real-time access to Interpol’s global database to enhance the country’s border security and strengthen its counter terrorism efforts.

Kulasekara added that with the implementation of this project, the Immigration Border Control System will be able to instantly access the Interpol database services, which has over 20 million data on lost passports and related documents. The project was initiated by the International Organisation for Migration under the guidance of the Defence Ministry According to a spokesperson, the project will be implemented by the end of the year.
