As an open economy, Sri Lanka takes the national competitiveness seriously in the efforts to continue to attract foreign direct investment, sustain her domestic investments and maintain her position in the global business environment.

The Government of Sri Lanka sees the private sector as the main driving force of the economic growth and development in the country, which the Government itself takes on the role of facilitating the business. Being the Investment Promoting Agency of the country, the Board of Investment (BOI) plays a vital role to facilitate the companies to enhance the smooth operation of doing business in Sri Lanka.

As such, BOI recommends the requirement of visas of investors and skilled workers under identified categories.
