Renewing a Foreign Employment License


Renewing a License


You can renew your agency license by submitting the completed application form available at the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE).

You must remember to submit the renewal application 30 days before the license expires and the SLBFE would then evaluate your  performances of past consecutive two years (if none of recruitment was done, renewal will be not granted.) inspect your office, equipment, records, extended bank guarantee and grant approval for the renewal of the license.

If you wish to shift your recruiting agency to a new location, you should obtain the approval of the License Division of the SLBFE by submitting and application along with the following documents:


  • Location of the new office
  • Proof of legal occupancy of such premises
  • Revised business registration certificate with the details of the new premises
  • Renewal fee - Rupees Fifty thousand (Rs.50,000)+VAT
