Sri Lanka has decided to amend the minimum age for migrant domestic workers to 21 years.

A document from the Department of Government Information said that the Cabinet of Ministers granted permission to revise the said age limit, after considering the recommendations of the Cabinet-appointed Sub-Committee.

The statement added that Sri Lankan women going overseas for employment as Domestic Aides have age limitations.

“For Saudi Arabia the minimum age is 25 years, and for other Middle Eastern Countries is 23 years, and for all other countries is it 21 years,” said the statement.

Accordingly, these limitations will be revised to 21 years.
