Just got my eta.in less than 1/4 hour approved.! is this a record?

I did it at 20.00hrs on a monday.british citizen all the way .if you

are not on a direct flight from UK remember to put in the last flight

number into SL.ie Dubai/sri lanka ek0011.not the uk flight #.also

all the dates seem to be american m/d/y.

If any D/Es read this can i buy S.LRupees @ dubai air port to save time through airport in S.L.

Happy hols everyone Chris.

1. Re: Eta

Hi Chris...

Good info about the ETA, useful for others...., not sure about records, but certainly has speeded up recently..

Rupees at Dubai?, maybe, but don't bother, even if you could you can only take in a small amount to Sri Lanka, and the rate will be lousy..

It won't take you long at Colombo to get Rupees, several banking desks just after the Customs Hall, all offer same rates and are open 24/7...
