Getting an Indian Tourist Visa in Jaffna

The indian embassy in lanka is stating on their website (http://www.ivsvisalanka.com/en/) that they have an office up in Jaffna. I was wondering if it is possible for foreign tourists to apply for a 3 month tourist visa there? If so how long does it usually take?

Hi there,

Well tourists can do at Kandy hence why not Jaffna? I'm afraid we don't have reports here from those who tried, so the guestimate is same duration as in Colombo and Kandy: 3-7 working days. Print the visa fees on that website, these should be followed - we've had reports of Kandy office asking considerably more, probably disappearing into someone's private pockets :-(

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

India has outsourced their visa service, so the link is not for the Indian High Commission.
