National Fuel Pass

The National Fuel Pass is an information system introduced by the Institute of Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) to formally manage the fuel crisis which has become the biggest problem in Sri Lanka currently.

Based on the guidance of the Ministry of Power and Energy, the aim here is to provide a guaranteed weekly fuel quota to fuel consumers by registering them on the National Fuel Pass and eventually eliminating the fuel queues that are seen throughout the country.

Prerequisite for registration.

Before registering for the National Fuel Pass, you have to meet the following requirements.

  1. A vehicle registered in Sri Lanka.
  2. A national identity card, passport, or business registration number
  3. A computer or smartphone with an internet connection.

Sometimes you may not be able to access the website due to huge traffic. Therefore, we recommend registering between 12:00 AM and 6:00 AM if possible. Due to the low amount of users on the website during that time period, you can register without any issues.
