Consulate General of Sri Lanka


The primary objective of the Sri Lankan Consulate in Victoria is to provide consular services to Sri Lankan expatriate community and Australian society


The Office of the Consulate General of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka in Victoria was established on 21 June 2013 in Melbourne with the principle objective of providing Consular services to the Sri Lankan expatriate community and Australians. The Consulate General has jurisdiction over Australian States of Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. Diplomatic relations between Sri Lankan and Australia were formally inaugurated in 1947.
The establishment of a Sri Lankan diplomatic Mission in Victoria was necessitated by the growing numbers of Sri Lankan expatriate community, students, visitors and promotion of trade and investment, sports, tourism etc.
Sri Lankans (formerly Ceylonese) started settling in Victoria since the 19th century. Their presence was first identified in the census conducted in 1871.
The Sri Lankan (Ceylonese) in Victoria remained small until the abolishment of “White Australia” policy in 1973. The end of the White Australia policy saw increase of the arrival of Sri Lankan migrants to Victoria.
According to Australian census of 2011, the number of Sri Lankans recorded in Victoria was 43, 991. Sri Lankans are the eight largest migrant population in Victoria. Out of this population 53% speak Sinhalese, 16% speak Tamil, and most others speak English. Religious diversity follows a similar pattern, with 42% Buddhist, 12% Hindu and 40% Christian.
The Consulate General of Sri Lanka is committed to serve Sri Lankan Community and Australians who wish to avail its services and we have been endeavoring to meet the demand at our level best.

Great customer service! I did have a complaint but that was addressed by the Consul General himself and was promised corrective action and was told I’ll be kept updated. Great to see such hard working men and women in a government agency in SL. Better customer service than their Australian counterparts. Well done!!

I had a very pleasant experience at the Consulate Office when I went to register my child's birth last Friday (13 October). I did not know that my paperwork was incomplete until I got there. But Mr. Karunathilake who was at the counter very patiently handled my application and guided me to fill in all Forms. I was very relieved in the end. After my work, he very politely asked me whether I could buy a raffle ticket of Canberra High Commission event. He never forced me or others who were visiting to buy these tickets. I was very happy to buy a ticket, and I saw few others voluntarily buying tickets when asked. I also thought that as a Sri Lankan it was a kind of an obligation to buy a ticket like that and help our country in a small way. Overall I received an excellent service at the Consulate. Keep up your good work!
