National policy for foreigners teaching at local madrasas

A large number of people without valid visas were serving in Islamic religious schools in the country, the Internal and Home Affairs and Provincial Councils and Local Government Ministry said in a statement yesterday.

In view of this fact, the need to conduct investigations into such foreign nationals in the country and formulate a national policy regarding them was discussed at a meeting held by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe with Internal and Home Affairs and Provincial Councils and Local Government Minister Vajira Abeywardena and Postal Services and Muslim Religious Affairs Minister M.H.A. Haleem, the statement said.

The Ministry has already directed the Immigration and Emigration Department and all other relevant sections to deport all persons employed in the country without valid work visas.
