90 Day Tourist Visa


Is it possible to get a 90 day tourist visa before travel or do I have to get a 30 day then extend it in the country?

BTW I don't live remotely close to London so a trip to the High Commission is out!

Thanks all

Hi there,

Before arrival solely through HC. And guess the UK has visa agencies doing it all on your behalf using registered mail just as we have them in other big countries - but yes that costs extra.

After arrival, solely by extending in Colombo-Borella; takes 4-6 hours at the government office (not all of them waiting, finally you hand over the passport and money and collect it 1-2 hours later).

All the best,

Never taken me 4-6 hours to extend my visa. It usually takes maximum 2-3 hours.
