Another group of Sri Lankan asylum-seekers decided to return home rather than wait to have their claims processed on Nauru.

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship confirmed six more Sri Lankan men returned home voluntarily today.

Five of the men were transferred from Nauru to the Australian mainland before departing Perth for Colombo on a commercial flight.

Meanwhile, Australia's Foreign Minister Senator Bob Carr will make a four-day official visit to Sri Lanka tomorrow.
