Over 1,500 Illegal Sri Lankan Migrants Repatriated from Malaysia in Two-Month Operation

May 24, Colombo (LNW): The Sri Lanka High Commission in Malaysia facilitated the repatriation of 1,608 Sri Lankan illegal migrants from March to April 2024. This operation, coordinated with the Malaysian Government’s Migrant Repatriation Programme, occurred over a two-month period from March 1, 2024, to April 30, 2024.

Prior to this programme, the High Commission assisted in repatriating 124 illegal migrants stranded in Malaysia from January 1 to February 28, 2024. This brings the total number of repatriated individuals to 1,732 for the year.

The Malaysian Government’s Migrant Repatriation Programme aims to help illegal immigrants voluntarily return to their home countries by offering legal exemptions and financial relief. During the repatriation period, the High Commission processed applications, provided necessary travel documents, and coordinated with Malaysian authorities to ensure a smooth return for all participants. Special attention was given to vulnerable groups, including the elderly, pregnant women, individuals needing medical assistance, and children under twelve.
