Sri Lanka has received support from Switzerland and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to scale up efforts for the safe repatriation of Sri Lankan migrant workers who were unable to return to the country due to the COID-19 epidemic.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, many migrant workers across the world remain stranded in transit and destination countries due to travel restrictions and reduced repatriation opportunities, the IOM said.

Currently, close to 40,000 Sri Lankan migrant workers will be supported to return to the country by the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) over the coming months.
