Established in 1985 under Act No. 21, amended by Act No. 4 of 1994 and Act No. 56 of 2009, the SLBFE stands as the foremost organization safeguarding the welfare of Sri Lanka’s migrant workforce and their families. As the primary legislative authority governing foreign employment, the SLBFE plays a crucial role in promoting ethical recruitment practices and ensuring a seamless transition for Sri Lankan workers seeking global career opportunities.

At Ivory Foreign Employment Agency, a licensed SLBFE recruiter, we leverage the bureau’s robust framework to connect employers worldwide with Sri Lanka’s highly skilled, trainable, and cost-effective talent pool. Our deep collaboration with the SLBFE ensures strict adherence to regulatory standards, enabling us to deliver a reliable and compliant recruitment experience.

Through the years, Sri Lanka has built an enviable reputation as a prime source of loyal, hardworking workers across diverse industries. The island nation’s liberalized trade policies and emphasis on vocational training have nurtured a workforce equipped with modern industrial skills and positive work attitudes. Prospective migrant workers undergo comprehensive training programs, gaining hands-on experience through apprenticeships with leading local industries, ensuring they meet the highest standards for overseas placements.
