Hi there...

A Business Visa is now required for "foriegners" to get married in Sri Lanka, this must be obtained BEFORE departure, from the Sri Lankan High Comission in London, can be done via post or in person in London..

Regards

Dear Dave

Thank you for this information. If he applies by post, how much does it cost please, and how long is it before the application is processed and the visa is given.

Best wishes
