Promotion of the LankaRemit Mobile Application

LankaRemit App, a new mobile application launched by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) together with the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE), will assist Sri Lankan expatriates with access to a fast, secure and more convenient remittance channel to send money to Sri Lanka. CBSL in collaboration with LankaClear (Private) Limited (LCPL) implemented the “LankaRemit” mobile application with the launching of the first phase in February 2022.

The App enables users to make fund transfers to beneficiaries in Sri Lanka and to make utility bill payments using Electronic Fund Transfer Cards issued overseas. LankaRemit also offers a number of value-added services to its users such as the ability to locate nearby money transfer operators and finding relevant details of such locations.

The LankaRemit mobile application is available to download in the Google Play Store, the Apple App and Huawei AppGallery for any remitting money to Lanka from any country.

CBSL and SLBFE held a ceremony on 26 August 2022 at SLBFE to demonstrate the features of the LankaRemit National Remittance Mobile Application with a view to popularize the App among migrant workers.
